Lennart de Neef asks Raquel van Haver
If you were asked to make an artwork for a roundabout, what would you propose?
That would definitely be something out of my comfort zone. It would be great to create something totally new. I would go wild with new materials. Something crazy like a reflecting object or a light sculpture should be something I would consider. I would huge an enormous amount of light and mirrors so it would even be impossible to draw to the roundabout. That is what I should do… perhaps one day… you never know…
Raquel van Haver asks Lennart de Neef
Difficult question… Because it’s also not allowed to walk naked in public, which is also a form of expression for some people. In my opinion, this is a dilemma between national security and free expression, where is this boundary? I think art has always been a good medium to question this.
About the topic of representation: are there any boundaries in art when it comes to representation of …(subject)?
I don’t think there are any boundaries when it comes to the representation of any subject. If you want to express yourself about a subject, you are free to do this. But I do think that the context in which you present it, asks for certain frameworks/boundaries.
