An altar for an ordinary animal
An altar for an ordinary animal manages to establish a connection between the church village of Diessen and the area where Landart Diessen takes place. In addition, visual artist Aurelia van der Burght brings an ode to the hare with this sculpture. This creature is equipped with special qualities. Fast, smart, alert, funny, symbolizes fertility, cyclic rebirth and magical power.
There is, however, a duplicity in what is observed. The holy water containers change effortlessly into dipping sauces. The hare has been placed in the corner by many, we would like to eat in pieces during a festive meal.
