WOLY - Winners Of Last Year

The three prize winners of the 2014 edition of the art festival Kunst10daagse in Bergen were invited by the board to create a Winners Of Last year exhibition with new works in 2015. Place of the event was the beautiful countryside around the Schlessart Gallery in Bergen. The works should be somehow inspired by the theme Reversal.
 
 

We, the artist-duo Prothmann and Krüger (D), a group called Artless Foundation (NL) and myself made an exhibition of three outside installations.

VIRTUAL LANDFILL - During the preparations of my installation the theme Reversal got very much connected to Recycling, as an ultimate and also urgent example of both forced change and economic opportunity. I came up with VIRTUAL LANDFILL as a place where people could bring waste material and where this potential crude matter could also be transformed - on the spot - into something new. I wanted a compact place, a shed, where matter, handicraft and inventivity merged.

Working on this idea my attention was drawn to a photo I made back in 2008 during a citywalk in the Belgium city of Gent. The picture has a surrealist duality. At first you see a sea sight with waves, but looking more closely it is nothing but layered plastic with condensed moisture in between. A link to the Plastic Soup problem in our oceans was obvious at that stage, so I decided to connect Virtual Landfill to the issue of plastic waste.

Eventually, VIRTUAL LANDFILL consisted of a wooden construction made of floorboards from an old Amsterdam school, in which I created a little plastic laboratory, a storing room, an exhibition space and a plastic trash basket outside.
