ROCK STRANGERS BY ARNE QUINZE - CITIES LIKE OPEN AIR MUSEUMS
Arne Quinze was born in 1971 in Belgium and lives and works in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium. Recurring fundamentals in his oeuvre are the use of electrical colors in fluorescent paint and themes referring to social interaction, communication, and urbanism.
Rocks Strangers (Zeeheldenplein, Oostende, Belgium) are strange objects popping up where you least expect them and having a huge effect on the urban and architectural context of the environment. Rocks Strangers generate the sentiment of estrangement because of their electric orange colour. At the same time however, they evoke the primal emotions of curiosity and astonishment of man.
