INERTIA @ Amsterdam Art Fair / other announcements
'Charon' shows a monster truck, slowly rotating in mid air above a mountainous, dusty and cloudy landscape. 'Charon' is the name of the ferryman in Greek mythology, who carries the dead across the river Styx in a boat. The truck is a proposed contemporary vehicle to cross the line between the living and the dead.
|'Charon', HD loop, 3'00", colour/no sound, 2015|
'Diggers' (this is a working title, and the animation is still in progress) shows a circle of excavators in an evenly rough landscape. There's a hole in front of them. They seem to perform some sort of ritual; a hail to the sky.
|'Diggers', working title/working still, HD loop, 4'00", colour, 2015|
One of these films will probably also be shown at D.ART, Mechelen (B), during a festival from July 1st until July 5th at an empty building right across the station.
With, amongst many others, Denitsa Todorova, Frederik Van Simaey, Kristof Van Heeschvelde, Lara Dhondt, Roeland Tweelinckx, Sam Eggermont, Sarah Carlier, Sarah De Vos, Sarah van Marcke, Tamara Dees.
Also, I'm proud to mention edition 1/3 of INERTIA is since recently part of the Collectie De Groen, Arnhem (NL).
