Acqua Scivolo
00 About the work of art

A French artist couple, Anne and Patrick Poirier are fascinated by the past, ruins and historical and archaeological sites. For Beaufort, they drew inspiration from the church of the former Abbey of Our Lady of the Dunes of Koksijde. Only a ruin complex with an accompanying Abbey Museum remains of the abbey, which is located a few kilometers away. As a foundation for the steel construction, the couple arranged the floor plan of the missing church vertically. The installation now constitutes an impressive beacon along the coast.
