A Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Site-specific installation, presented at Moira, Utrecht
Together with fellow artists Annabelle Binnerts and Caz Egelie, I have produced an large immersive installation called ‘A Short Ride in a Fast Machine’ in Moira Utrecht. The installation is dedicated to the retro perspective exhibition of ‘The Artist’, a celebrated but invisible figure. Each of us got into character and played the role of ‘the Artist’. With the exhibition we try to question the conventions about exhibiting and what it means to present work in an institutional context.
While walking through the exhibition, the visitor moves through several separate exhibition areas, finally concluding into a space that can be seen as the backstage storage of a museum. My part of this collaboration, besides the exhibited works, mainly concerned the exhibition architecture, the spatial design of the museum and routing through it.
