CLOSER WIM TELLIER

In the CLOSER project, artist Wim Tellier exhibits a 105 x 68 meter canvas print of a man in a fire suit in Knokke-Heist. “You see one individual, a man in a fire suit, in a very self-confident pose,” Tellier explains. “He seems invincible, as if nothing can happen to him. But that’s just an illusion.

Sunflowers

At a later stage, the man-in-protection suit will take on a completely different guise. The suit is going to be perforated next year and sunflowers will grow through it as the antithesis of that self-confident man. The seeds are going to overpower him and eventually overgrow him.” Tellier chose the sunflower as a symbol of modesty and a nod to the sun.

Beach chairs

Then the entire fabric is recycled into beach chairs. At the end of the art project, all the chairs are brought together for an event where the timelapse is projected.

The project Closer by Wim Tellier will be on display in Knokke-Heist near AZ Zeno from April 4 to September 4.
