Vliegende messen [Flying Knives]
Materials: knifes, motor, thread
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0100).
The installation with the flying knives (1974) is an example of the perpetuum mobile, with two ominously rotating kitchen knives performing a fatal circular dance. This can be interpreted as art claiming its own territory. We enter at our own risk.
