Thomas Mailaender, ‘Gone fishing’ (2009)

The Gone Fishing project tells the modern epic of a young man fleeing his new responsibilities as a father by going on holidays with buddies. Through a false compilation of letters from the young dad to the young mom, Thomas Mailaender invents a character: a sort of immature Ulysses, more inspired by the beer, big-game fishing or ping-pong tournaments that by his new-born child.

Danh Vo

The on-going project “Vo Rocasco Rasmussen” that began in 2003, was one of Danh Võ’s first forays in the systematic subversion of hegemonic cultural structures. Legally marrying and adopting the names of one close friend after another, this on-going work could be seen as a tribute to loyalty and love, but his subsequent accumulation of names over time calls into question the role a name plays in our understanding of identity. His passport, for example, does not read the same as his bank-card, and the name on his driver’s license is different from his door bell.
