"Golfslag" Exhibition

Vrijbroekpark Mechelen

Golfslag is an exhibition organized as part of the “project workshop atelier” of the academy of Mechelen. ‘Golfslag’ literally translates to ‘wave’ but it also can be used to indicate the hitting of a ball in the game of golf. This meaning is where the inspiration for this project derives from, as it is done in cooperation with the Citygolf of Mechelen. 

The exhibition consists of 27 works that have been made by the participants in the atelier, all with a different art background (painting, glass, ceramics, mixed media, …). There are 3 different play / art routes organized by Mechelen City Golf  which allow you to discover the different creations in a playful manner. It is of course also possible to visit the works without the tour, as the park is freely accessible during opening hours (sunrise to sunset).

The work I made is inspired by both definitions of golfslag. It consists of 18 rectangular discs that vary in size to give a loose interpretation of a wave. The work is titled “voorbij het breekpunt” (past the breaking point). Due to the laws of physics, a wave breaks when the ratio 1 to 7 is exceeded. This means that a wave of 7 meters will break when it becomes higher than 1 meter. 

In my work this ratio has been exceeded and therefore my wave should have broken already, but it obviously did not. I like to use this as a metaphor for a society where a lot of people are under constant pressure to outperform themselves and are living with a small drawback that could lead to a total breakdown.
