Bringing sand to the dessert 2018
In 1961 dutch artist Wim T. Schippers emptied a bottle of lemonade into the sea. The dutch saying, bringing water to the sea, came alive with this piece of performance art. It actually means: Doing something that's totally unnecessary.
Inspired by this piece of art and knowing I was going to visit the Atacama, I went outside my home in the Netherlands and collected some sand from the playground. Once we arrived, my son Ben helped me and poured the sand into the desert. And so another piece of art was born.
A little bit more of this drawing I’m working on. Here’s a little time lapse of one of her hands. I find hands the hardest part of the body to get right so I’ll probably add a bit more to this later on! #wip
