"AVANT CAR GUARD at the crossroads of Critical Acclaim and Commercial Success II"
Site specific installation with various dimensions

Concept: The two works made specifically for the project talk in a reflexive way about the environmental impact our involvement has had on the project. They make honest statements about how we can reduce our environmental impact and they also comment upon the relational dynamics between first and third world contexts. These statements are coupled with a sideways homage to Johannesburg as the New York City of Africa.

Participate: Both artists and viewers are encouraged to actively consider the carbon footprint incurred when producing work for exhibition and when traveling to view works, respectively. Online tools will be used to measure artist and viewer carbon dioxide emissions, gauge ways to reduce those emissions, and then offset the remainder by planting trees. Active dialogue with AVANT CAR GUARD in South Africa is encouraged, please send them an email at and visit the following sites:
