Three trios and duets set out to conquer the bisontine streets in the company of the mischievous Dutch artist.
After a presentation of his practice of art in the public space, Harmen proposed to the different groups to appropriate the public space in their own way. Inspired by the artist’s audacity and mischievousness, each one realized performances as well as installations in connection with their environment… and the capricious climate! The more than conclusive result delighted both the teams and the artist.

Anonymity allows the passerby of appropriate urban diversions of Harmen de Hoop according to his imagination, disconnecting them from any link with the artistic world. A basketball court that seems to slip under a wall, HOTEL sticker on a subway entrance, accessories on statues are part of the vocabulary of his wacky and cheering installations.
