︎︎︎Highway Harmony

Steel structure, traffic signs, wood panels and spray paint
390 x 805 x 73 cm


        Co-created with Justin Dirkx

In collaboration with:
Nourah, Happy, Jay, Favour, Yassin and Liam

'Highway Harmony' is a collective creative production. The monumental installation mimics a higway structure which served as a canvas for a two-day workshop with teenagers (ranging from 15 to 19 years old) from youth organisations Betonne Jeugd en Boslabs. They were invited to express themselves freely without a predetermined theme or intention.

With the support of:
Vlaams Architectuurinstituut and Het Bos

Special thanks to Betonne Jeugd VZW, Boslabs and DE SINGEL arts centre

Exhibition proposal Ayrton Eblé '15 jaar Artistieke Opleiding' 15/12/2015

Project name: 'Graf van de Creatie/ Tombe de l'Art/ Friedhof der Kunst’

The idea for this project is to dig a hole according to the dimensions of a dumpster container (540 x 245 x 145 cm). This size refers to the dumpster container at the back of the school in which students school projects unintenionally used to end up in if they weren't labled clearly enough. Most of the time this was the result of an overzealous cleaning staff and tidy teachers.

The hole will remain empty during the length of the exhibition. Afterwards the hole will be filled with soil and grass seeds. A sign stating the title will be placed in front of the hole (copying the Middelheim Museum's information signs design) The project will be documented afterwards and placed on my website.

I hope my idea will be approved by the coordinators and I look forward to hearing your response.

Kind regards,

Ayrton Eblé
