Sheep


A journey from Inner Mongolia (China) to Mongolia, with as travel companion a sheep. 

For the Land Art Biennial Mongolia (LAM 2014), with this year's theme, the interaction between humans and animals, I went to Mongolia to bring a befriend artist a long promised gift. As a political choice I bought a sheep in Inner Mongolia (China), gave him the necessary medical checks a passport and trolley. As a symbol for a world wide endangered nomadic life I decided to risk the consequences of crossing the border. But the main intention for this journey is not to arrive, but to experience the special bound between human and animal if they have to rely on each other.

July 11 2014 Heizima Hutong 13, Dongcheng district 100009, Beijing CHINA

In IFP's new projectspace ‘Black Sesame', I will present a new site-specific installation consisting of an artificial environment, inviting visitors into a thermal atmosphere of vapour and gas. I will display my research and investigations about the human desire to control the forces of nature to our benefit in this case vapour, the sky, the clouds.

A MOUNTAIN DESTROYED ITSELF AT THE SAME PACE AS IN IT WAS CREATED


Site Specific Installation on the Mont Sainte Victoire. Stainless steel (2 x 1.5 m)

20 June - 31 October 2014
Mont Sainte Victoire, Domaine de Saint-Ser, Puyloubier, France 

In respect for the impressive presence of this adjacent mountain, I produced for the "Paysage et Patrimoine 2014” an object that will exist merely of an compilation of reflections of it’s surrounding. Due to the different wind directions the first reflections will be provided by nature itself. Curated by Erika Negrel
