One Step at A Time
For YART, Villa unravels the (wether or not symbolic) earthly and social climbing, guided by the ladder (as an object).
It was designed and built from scratch with hybrid materials. Because the connection between the place, distance and time plays a major role in his work, he harvested his materials in the Duivelsteen castle.
As a sort of cross-section of his timeline. The action became a poetic experiment of (re)making, of which the artist didn’t know in advance - and didn’t want to know - where it would bring him.
