Project: HeHe, 'RODUIN'

HeHe, sketch proposal RODUIN

The artist duo Helen Evans (UK, 1972) and Heiko Hansen (Germany, 1970), realised a colourful artwork on the southern beach of Maasvlakte 2. In May 2012 circa 75 tonnes of red sand were distributed on this beach. This red stain slowly disappeared under the influence of wind, rain and the sea.


The artists were surprised that, while entirely man-made, Maasvlakte 2 looked like it had always been there. The unnatural red layer of sand emphasized the amalgamation between nature and culture. The artists recorded the process of nature overruling culture.
