COVID-19 means we all have to maintain an “appropriate distance” from each other. If 1.5 metres is the minimum distance in The Netherlands, then what could be the maximum distance? How much space would there actually be for every inhabitant of the Netherlands?
You’ll see a yellow square measuring 49.03 metres by 49.03 metres. An area of 2,404 m². This is how much space every Dutch person would have if you divided the Netherlands equally among its population. This work is a physical depiction of what your personal space could be. Well? How does it feel? And what about other countries?
Personal Square is part of the art project “At an appropriate distance”, commissioned by CBK Groningen.
