Field Essays

In March 2019, Max and Ciel were invited to present existing work in the Transfer space of MarionDeCannière Gallery in Antwerp. It was only a few months after the House for Seasonal Neighbours took place in Borgloon. Instead of documenting this intervention, they decided to show 2 new Field Essays which continued the exploration of potential representational spaces for homeless seasonal neighbours in the Belgian countryside of today and tomorrow.

On one image, one can recognize the same parking lot of the local Aldi market in Boeshoven, this time even more dressed-up as a cultural space. The other shows the basis of a windmill on a strawberry field of rural Flanders, that turned into a futuristic field house to shelter from the rain. However, on both, humans seem to remain invisible again —or are they rather camouflaged?
