Hubert Robert, ‘The Accident’ (ca. 1790-1804)
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.
