Dertien Hectare is a Brabant art foundation that presents an exhibition every two years in the outskirts of Heeswijk-Bernheze. In 2007 the title of this exhibition was "The meadow that wanted to become famous".

It looks like a castle in scaffolding, so that the meadow and the young forest suddenly seem to have a different future ahead of them. The meadow is given the opportunity to transform into a castle estate. By placing various work by other artists, the estate also became a sculpture garden.

Tragically, however, the pasture will always remain 'a pasture that wanted to be famous' because the castle will never be completed. Perhaps the part of the pasture that is located inside the castle can become famous: it can be experienced by the visitor as an isolated and framed detail.
