Wildebeest

Aorta / De Aanloop Amsterdam 1986

A herd of forty-seven toy wildebeest on a hide-shaped savannah, replicated with sand and miniature trees, are arranged in such a way that they seem to be on the run. Behind them on a monitor real wildebeest are fleeing. The sound of thundering hooves nearly drowns out the drone of the airplane that chases the animals in their flight. Every now and then- the blast of a gunshot.

Dim. 2,5 x 1,75m
Sand, plastic wildebeest, miniature trees, monitor, modelling clay
