When I graduated, I was one of several laureates to receive a well-known Belgian prize for art students. For the laureate exhibition I built a rough wooden volume. This volume was placed at a distance of half a meter from one of the corners of the exhibition space.

My portfolio, a closed cardboard box and a cardboard tube (together containing a book, posters, a videotape and a multiple) was placed in the corner of the volume.
Between the sides of the volume and the walls of the exhibition space were wooden shelves on which I’d placed a large number of works that were reproduced in my portfolio.
