In the garden of the Noordsingel prison (Netherlands) an 18 meter high palmtree is standing on a small white island of exactly 10,2 m2. This tree will be clearly visible from outside the prison. This image will cause curiosity, but if you realy want to now what is behind those walls, a not advisable route most be taken. Those imprisoned will experience a different point of view. At the foot of the tree isn’t the desired paradise but a barren white island of exactly the same size as a prison cell. By PIEK!.


PIEK! made concrete suitcases and placed them next to benches and picknickplaces in parks etc. These ‘lost suitcases’ were ankered in the ground. Nowadays these suitcases are grown with moss-green and really look like forgotten suitcases that have never been picked up yet.
