A View on Discharge Point NLDP11014, 2022
inkjet print, glass frame

74% of Amsterdam’s wastewater undergoes treatment at the RWZI Amsterdam West, situated in the port area. Following treatment, the wastewater is discharged into the North Sea Channel through the designated discharge point NLDP11014.
The picture hanging in the laundrette depicts this discharge point in a manner reminiscent of a travel destination, suggesting that it has been on display in the laundrette for years already. The work inserts the water treatment plant into the place where water becomes unclean as a result of yet another cleaning process. A View on Discharge Point NLDP11014 establishes a visual link between two interrelated sites deliberately kept isolated from each other.

The work was part of the Studio for Immediate Spaces end-of-year show „Bring Your Dirty Laundry“ and is now on permanent display at The Clean Brothers Wasserette, Amsterdam.
