Living and working in Sint Pieters Kapelle, Rik Delrue has a close relationship with Middelkerke. He has already been visited several times for an exhibition and driven by his social involvement he set up some high-profile social artistic projects that resulted in artworks in our open space.
Location: Koninginnelaan site opposite Residentie Haerlebout Middelkerke
In 2014, Delrue worked with the cultural service Middelkerke on the 'War versus War' project. Artistic elaboration of this was the Staring Moles. A collection of moles that bring the underground and underlying signals from various conflict stories to the surface from two hills and contained in an ear line.
Rik Delrue focuses on the icons of popular culture and creates a deeper meaning, a reflection on our society. His works are messengers of feelings, stories and testimonies, both individual and universal.
