En garde! - an installation - De Natris Gallery 2018
In summertime the door of Gallery De Natris stays closed. But there is a huge window you can look through. Bart Drost makes a new installation for this specific place. He will transform more than 400 balloons into swords. Childrens toys, fighting toys. It will be cheerful bunch. Come on and play!
The swords are like a mountain. a big mountain, compared to the pile of wooden swords that Drost presented at the exhibition 'scheppingsdrang' in VM23, 2017. Less dramatic too. Or is this not what it looks like?
The balloons will play mountain in the gallery for two months. But balloons do not have the eternal life. Slowly, very slowly they run empty. Slowly, very slowly the mountain will collapse.
