a light installation about 'not having to'

JE MOET NIET (YOU DON’T HAVE TO) is a light artwork and a concept of Lucas De Man, designed by Pascal Leboucq and financed for a big part by the Verkadefabriek. The artwork is the goodbye present of Lucas to the city ‘s-Hertogenbosch where he says goodbye as city artist after four fantastic years.

In the past four years a number of beautiful projects have been realized, in collaboration with the municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, partners, artists, Het Zuidelijk Toneel and of course Company New Heroes. Without all these people, projects like OOG (EYE) and WOLK (CLOUD) would have never been possible.

Light installation JE MOET NIET is about one of the most important themes our work is about; public as a space of encounter, a place for everyone where you be who you want to be. A place where we’re free.

The artwork has been made and put on the roof in secret, even the municipality didn’t know from whom it was at first. The artwork will remain on the Markt until February 20th, after that day it will be transported to another place yet unknown.
