Arne Quine’s “The Passenger” was officially inaugurated on 2 December. From the outset the wooden construction had stability issues.
Earlier this week passers-by heard cracking noises and on Friday part of the structure collapsed. Arne Quinze, the city of Mons and the local fire service have now taken the joint decision to dismantle and remove the work of art.
“The Passenger” was to have remained in Mons for 5 years. However, its stay in the capital of Hainaut province has come to an end after little more than 5 weeks.
