The project Bricks consists of the 2 video installations La couleur de la brique (2017) and Ingahi Kama (2018), the installation Circular construction versus human body – referring to Toshikatsu Endo (2018), the publication Piles des Bricks/Piles des briques (2020), the installations and performances Piles of Bricks (2020-ongoing) and the drawing series Brick Dust (2020-ongoing).

Circular Construction versus Human Body – Referring to Toshikatsu Endo is a work on site for the exhibition space ARGOS, aided by students of the bricklayer school of the Flemish Employment Agency in Vilvoorde. It incorporates various types of brickware bonds. These refer to different traditions and cultures and so the sculpture bears witness to a variety of human contributions. The work is installed near the entrance of the exhibition and leaves precisely sufficient space to allow the visitor to walk completely around it. While the work is the result of an intense cooperation and embraces diversity, its robustness also radiates a certain threat. The sculpture can also be seen as an obstruction.
