Art's Birthday 2015

The people at Plank Tone organized a fold-a-hat competition to celebrate Art's 1.000.052nd birthday.
The first prize being a small golden hat.

I gave it a go and started playing with the words, ending up with a series of anagrams on the phrase "Art's Birthday 2015". Then Marcel Duchamp's hat rack sprang up in my mind, just begging to be married to Robert Filliou's paper hats. And thus the winner was born.

I made some more variations too:

And with the recent commotion surrounding Luc Tuymans and Katrijn Van Giel about plagiarism 
I could not resist this spoof:

(This is definitely a legal pastiche, right?)

Inside/Insight. ( The Spectacle: a cheap device for changing the world )

Spectacles with (non-transparent) mirrors facing inward.

Put these on your nose, and look deep into your own eyes for a lenghty amount of time.

You will never be the same again!

First shown at Pofferd-De-Nul artspace in Antwerp in 1998.

See that my grave is kept clean ( Cemetery Of Dreams )

graveyard of dreams

Study for "The Cemetery Of Dreams".

Proposal for an area where people can come to bury their dreams.
Each grave should/would be marked by a memorial stone of some sorts and flowers and/or candles may be placed.
The dream may be buried but the memory is kept alive.

Anybody with a spare slab of land to spare and willing to open it to the public can drop us a line...

Broken dreams cemetery, art installation, site-specific art installation.

Inventing Hot Water

Recently some folks are cashing in on an original idea I had in 1993.
I don't really mind, but It would show some respect if they, at least, would mention where they got the inspiration from...

And somewhere in England too...


And here as well:

And someone else claims to be the first one too...13 years after the fact:

The original is here
