Anne & Patrick Poirier

°1942, Marseille, France 

The French artists Anne and Patrick Poirier like to think of themselves as twins who were separated at birth and met again many years later at the Louvre. The duo is fascinated by the past, by ruins and by historical and archaeological sites. In Koksijde they were inspired by the Abbey ‘Ten Duinen’. For their work Acqua Scivolo (Water Slide), the floor plan of the church was placed vertically and constituted the point of departure for this steel construction which also served as a lookout tower.
