"Acting on Orders", 2008
Poster and blog
Concept: De Wet, Gimberg and Nerf hate being told what to do. The motivation of this project comes from the fact that most people do not take responsibility for their actions and their lives. This trio has created a scenario that spans the Atlantic and crosses the equator to Johannesburg, South Africa where the viewer tells them what to do. The artists will follow orders like soldiers do.
Participate: For the full 9 weeks of the exhibition, visitors are offered the opportunity to "take command" and the artists will be "acting on orders". Visitors should email commands to:
and action of artists will be posted on:
