Kim De Ruysscher lived in an abandoned quarry in the Tuscan countryside for years. A two kilometres private road swung like a true pleasure to his secret paradise. In addition, security and safety were of great importance.
'Inhabited Land' is a self-portrait. It reflects to a place, time and location.
In this site-specific work, consisting of three main components, we see that the small symbolic red iron cottage is transparent and the sculpted road exists from moss. The sense of security and safety is constructed by a large but short wall of local stone. This wall is painted white with a subtle accent of different colours on the upper edge. The combination of these three elements -wall, road and house- were metaphorically used by Kim De Ruysscher. As if we are in the middle of a haiku poetry which unfolds through the combination of different elements.
