a small revolt

"What might the shape of global culture look like today if there were no exotic cultures to discover or faraway places to explore?" – Okwei Enwezor

A journey that started at the pigeon shed in the back of my grandfather's garden situated on the Flemish countryside, with its typical shed constructions, dark interiors and in my case the pigeon sport, became a small revolt against the fact that we still look towards foreign cultures for inspiration and often from a very dominant Western point of view. It's a fact that we now live in a global world, so will we also evolve towards a global culture?

This research led to an installation where different media and materials like textiles, wood and ceramics create their own universe. Inspired on the artifacts and pictures I took during my journey, the act of collecting and constructing without any aesthetic plan.
