1980 — Campo Santo, Ghent

On the hill of the Campo Santo Cemetery Jan Dries realizes a peat road which turns as much left and right as it goes straight ahead. With this image he makes a comparison with the way human beings walk. This art piece can be walked on. Little by little the earth soaks up the peat, causing the work to cancel itself out in the long term.
