For Bien Urbain, Harmen offered a nice surprise on the path of the curious come to discover the works of the Battant district! Philippe Cornus, professor of music education at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional du Grand Besançon offered curious people a spontaneous music lesson during a walking tour, tracing litters directly on the plaster!

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.
