Aeneas Wilder: exhibitions In geval van nood back«

In geval van nood

mixed media, performance, 2002

The gallery is situated on the outside of the bar de Schouw and is therefore in the public sphere. The text was a translation into dutch of the phrase "in case of emergency break glass". Behind this text was a piece of graffiti, a copy of the only piece of graffiti in the gents toilets of the bar. The graffiti shows a flower and the text No Border(sic) No Nations. During the week long exhibition, no one smashed the glass, so I made the symbolicdestruction of the gallery on the last evening of the show, commemorated on DVD produced by the gallery.
