In 2010 Leen Dewilde started destroying things, smashing cups, breaking down walls, cutting up furniture and sawing the legs off chairs.

A String Section started as one of these works, a simple set of 5 chairs, 5 women and 5 saws. A project where the production of sawdust, the legs over legs, the half broken chairs, the residue of the action is as important as the action itself. Up until today many chairs have been dismantled.
