Operational Space I, 2018

A dream for those who go, a challenge for those who stay behind, 2018
Mixed media collage
40 cm x 60 cm 
The project excists out of a diptych, consisting of a collage commisioned by MurfMurw magazine and an installation exhibited at Club Colo in Breda, NL. The projects title is based on the slogan of the popular Dakar Rally. Originally hold in Africa, but moved to South America due to a terrorist attack. Mega Sport Events are a phenomenon frown upon, and so is the race: because of it’s carbon frootprint, colonialistic references and damage to the landscape, such as the Nazca lines in Peru and the yet to be mapped fossilbeds under the first layers of desert sand. The organisation of the race seems to keep things quiet, but sponsorship on the vehicles is loudly present for decades.
