Stijn van Dorpe, ‘Clio’ (2009)

Together with a teacher and the students of a local technical secondary school, Van Dorpe worked towards an image that translated the power and energy of both the low budget exhibition initiative and the youngsters. A black Renault Clio was turned upside down and the necessary adjustments were made to enable the car to keep on running, however without moving forward. During a performance at the opening night of the exhibition, the physical power that the car developed was shown as a dynamic spectacle – accompanied by a drummer and T-shirts printed with technical details of the car.
