Artwork for the Ronald McDonald sport Centre for disabled children and youth in Amsterdam size: 3 x 26 m & 3 x 13 m year: 2010
photo installation consisting of two large photographs was made for the Ronald
McDonald Kinderfonds Sport Centre for handicapped children and teenagers in
Handicapped youngsters were photographed in situations in which
their bodies can temporarily give up restrictions in relation to gravity. In
one image we see the youngsters caught as they jump into the water, while in
the other they jump on a large inflatable bouncer. In both of these pictures
the progression of time is captured in a single encompassing image by stitching
different instants of time together.
The freedom which is expressed in the
freely propelled bodies temporarily cancels the difference which separates the
disabled youngsters from their able bodied contemporaries.
