Urban Playground To Sleep On
During the annual art fair Art Pie International/Kunstvlaai 2010 (taking place between May 15-23), Amsterdam-based artist Brian Kersbergen aka ROYALSTEEZ showed his biggest work so far.
The project is entitled ‘Disney made me care’ and has a length of 85 meters. More than 75 discarded mattresses, arranged very adjacent, were placed along the channel promenade wating for the reaction of passers-by. Will visitors be able to resist not to lay on it? Or will they be disgusted by the confrontation with the most intimate object in a human life? A short observation points to the last. Although children seem to have less problems with old mattresses. To the contrary, they like to use it as an obstacle to run on.
