A masterplan has been designed for the docks of Ghent. Some buildings have to disappear while
concrete will be poured somewhere else, waterside dwellers will meet new neighbours and
yesterday s practices will make way for current activities.
Following this plan, the concrete structure of the Grindbakken used in the past to transfer gravel
and sand between ships and trucks was about to be transformed into a multi-purpose area
accessible to the public, supplied with water and electricity and painted white as an empty canvas
for future activities.
When we were asked to present a first intervention in this space, we chose to interfere in this
painting process. We selected and documented specific areas of interest, and 36 frames were built
on-site to protect these areas during the cleaning and painting.
