Le Project du Cirque, is a big wall-sized collage work made
on location for de similar named exhibition in Eindhoven, the Netherlands
during the Dutch Design Week 2010.
De collage is built up in layers, with different distance from the wall, this
way creating a 3dimensional effect. Prints of different object & organisms
are combined with paper cuttings of different colored paper applied with a hand
drawn pattern in gold. The pink fluorescent eyes where connected to a small
motor allowing them to turn hypnotizing around and around.
The idea for the collage grew out of a poetic research of explorer’s and their
journeys. How did they experience the world, in a time when so little was know,
and every thing was a new discovery? In my work I try to capture a weird,
crazy, exotic feeling in an encounter with the observer.
