The Gate is an on site work. It is a wall with a doorway, which functions as a marker and demarcation of a site. The materials used are all found footage, every stone or brick has a story behind it. The Gate is a mix of personal memories, like a gate to history. The bricklaying is an investigation of possibilities, no straight lines, pushing the boundaries of the materials and the technic. Some stones are collected by Erik Wuthrich while travelling in Spain, some are restauration stones from his former neighbour; the Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam, some stones are found in a gallery garden in Friesland, also former road bricks of the street where he was born are used to build this Gate. The wood used for the door is made of on site trees.
