TWIN STATIONS

BEAUFORT-LOCATION: TRAM DEPOT, LOSKAAI 15, DE PANNE

Matt Mullican

°1953, Santa Monica, USA 

Matt Mullican became fascinated by the coast tram and the physical characteristics of the tracks. He divides the world into five world systems or cosmologies: the pure substance, the world of things, the world of science and art, the signs and the language, and the mental activity. He uses symbols and simple icons comparable to pictograms. The images are always incorporated into his cosmological system. In Twin Stations the form of the fifteen cast iron plates evokes floor plans or charts. During the six months of Beaufort03 the original uniform grey colour of the plates obtained a rugged and asymmetric pattern, caused by natural oxidation.
