You’re driving from A to B and collecting all the other letters but in no particular order; meanwhile, you also manage to gather together all the prime numbers, and even π, not to mention the Fibonacci sequence.
If you can imagine this then you are well prepared to look at ON TRACK
There is no correct point in the installation – failure and loss is its movement, its success. Here you will meet a motorized broom looking a bit out of shape, more ladylike than other brooms, in the prime of her life but yet a little worn out after sio much drudge work. The broom is followed by a few desperate Robots, nicely dressed in tails and doing whatever they please. The broom keeps its countenance within its speed up and down and up and down in the mess and out of the mess, letting loose and catching pigments, sand, water, oil … as you please .. the many materials we are surrounded by these days. The broom’s environment gets more lively, more beautiful, more ugly, and even more smelly. In any case, this particular environment is growing with every new showcase!
The whole installation is more or less a metaphor of the helpless situation of our global pushing and pulling, bringing and taking.
The robot creatures get nervous when faced with the countenance of the broom, instead of working out the disaster they create a new metaphor of disaster, quite charming but helpless.
Failure was one of the strongest points we suggested in the concept.
Transmission of loss was the working title in the beginning. Isn’t it sad that we succeed so well at our first TRY?
