Let's feed ice-cream to the rats
3 - 30 September 2007
In the city centre of Delft and in front of 'Uit de kunst' I realized this material-action in a telephone booth 'for art' and on invitation by Els Cornelis.
For this specific occasion I was collecting waste and arranged these materials inside a phone booth that was especially meant to show art out in public. It was my aim to stimulate an active dialogue with passersby to stimulate this dialogue I attached post-its on the windows with teasing, sometimes provocative notes.
During the exhibition people were gluing their reactions on the outside of the window in response. At 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 towards our consumption society.
