Jesper Just, Continuous Monuments; West at Huis Huguetan, The Hague

About the sculpture by Jesper Just, presently in public space at Lange Voorhout, i wrote an article for Villa La Repubblica. Click here to read the article (in Dutch).

The public sculpture is part of Just’s project Continuous Monuments at West in Huis Huguetan (Huguetan House).

Just has used the same kind of chalky concrete blocks to make walls in the small 18th century palace as an environment for four of his video loops, as well as a work specially made for the venue.

Well, in fact everything looks very much made for the venue in spite of the fact that the videos were conceived at different times.

All videos have to do with walls and architecture.

They become the visible power of ideas, social and political, and they are all confronted by lone individuals, women who seem to bend the power of these walls to their own creativity.

Videos, sounds and walls blend in a very special way in the architecture of Huis Huguetan.
