In 1997, Tom van Vliet (director of the World Wide Video Festival, Amsterdam) selected Marcha de Elefantes for an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. The work consisted of a webpage, showing a red toy elephant. Reflected on the surface of the elephant, one could see a sequence of images of miserable shacks, along a highway of south Madrid. The same elephant was then painted in a large format onto the wall of the museum, and the same sequence of images was projected on to the painting. The intention of the work, was to give a symbolic space to all those who have lost their homes⠀⁣

⠀⁣
The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀⁣
⠀⁣
The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances⠀⁣

“Marianna, The fairy Doll” ( 2004 ) shows the representation of the girl in front of the mirror, an image that she can’t share as a selfie, but we can enjoy as a work of art thanks to the great work of Rineke Dijkstra. #art #videoart #stedelijk #amsterdam #selfie

At Spinoza’s time the day of the week was always the same for days occurring in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, however, the day of the month for any given solar day was different in each calendar. #amsterdamlightfestival #publicartexperience #amsterdam

“Don’t imagine there’s room for everyone in the museum. Perhaps for a few who are really interested in it. But there is room for everyone in other places. You can use art in all sorts of ways. Society needs you.” Michelangelo Pistoletto #publicartexperience #amsterdamlightfestival #amsterdam
