‘Space Oddity’, Grand Horum Boussu, Belgium
8 Nov 2012
Nauta & Gordijn’s Fragile Future III was selected to show in the exhibition “Space Oddity” at the Grand Hornu Museum.
The exhibition touches on a metaphorical and poetic tableau of an unlikely future; a naïve vision of an imaginary world that has turned towards the weird and the bizarre. The first part of the show is a stroll through a landscape that expresses man’s fascination with these space oddities, a fantasy inspired by conscious and unconscious references to the canons and classics of the genre.
Some use state-of-the-art technology to challenge future modes of production. But the real value of the projects shown here resides above all in their dream-like and fantastical dimension. Poetry is also part of the future.
In collaboration with Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
