A few weeks before my residence at Frans Masereel Centrum my bike was stolen in Brussels. Rather than resigning myself to its loss, I set about trying to secure its return. Consequently I went on to produce an edition of silkscreen prints that were fly-posted throughout the city.
An additional deluxe edition of 10 prints has also been produced, the sales of which will provide for the purchase of a replacement bicycle.
At the same time I've been working on a series of transfer lithographies depicting NASA's first rocket launches. Ten different prints were sent to fictional addresses without any means of return. It is imagined that they remain in a postal limbo, forever on a journey of discovery.
Once used to promote the space race and technological progress, today those photographs merely document the obsolescence of that very idea; trapped between past and future, they now sit in in a new poetic dimension.
