For the Grindbakken pits’ first temporary activity, Rotor came up with the idea of framing several parts of the concrete, as opposed to painting them. Their concept adapts and reuses what already existed while transforming the space into a modern artistic hub. Following this initial renovation the space is expected to be opened up to other artists. The Grindbakken exhibition is currently open to visitors in Ghent.
