Lichtpunt (A ray of hope)
From the outside, the exhibition is peaceful. It is a repetitive structure of white curtains with colored panels behind them. However, those who get closer will see a title with a date on each panel. They are titles to lost stories. Behind each of these panels is a small history of a mural painting you can discover as you enter the exhibition. The paintings on these murals tell a story of the turbulent history the of Noordwijk through the eyes of the locals.
Ben Dalle, Flemish Minister of Brussels, opened the exhibition in the auditorium of the Herman Teirlinckgebouw. Along with a lecture by City Guide Joris Sleebus.
This traveling exhibition is fully deconstructible into small pieces and takes 3 hours to set up and 2 hours to dismantle

The panels of the exhibition are height adjustable, making the exhibition easily adaptable for children. The carpet consists of 2 colors. This creates the possibility for different uses. There are 2 types of constellation: a central informing point and an asymmetric telling point.
This exhibition, as well as the design, was completely built and fabricated
by myself with the help of my family.
