Let's feed ice-cream to the rats
3 - 30 September 2007

In the centre of Delft and in front of 'Uit de kunst' I realized this work on invitation by Els Cornelis.

For this material-action I collected waste and arranged this inside a phone booth that was especially meant to show art out in public. To stimulate an active dialogue with passersby I attached post-its on its windows with teasing, sometimes provocative texts.

During the exhibition people were gluing their reactions on the outside of the window in response. On a certain moment this exchange became very intense and some people even threw food against the phone booth and attached angry messages.

With this work I intended to make an undefined monument for today’s passivity in our consumption society.
