Sander Dekker X Gwen van der Zwan
Gwen - Amsterdam, NL
When I read the headline “The Eating of Humans” in the newspaper, I did not hesitate and booked a table for this five-course dinner. I met Gwen, the initiator. She is a journalist who is not afraid to create provocative content as an artist herself. We started talking and she told me about a new project in which she, as a vegetarian, wanted to airborne balloons as a symbol for the killed 'consumer animals'. With the side note that the balloons were made from the residual waste from the animals themselves collected at the local butcher. ‘Raise' awareness and give something back to nature, all in one go. On a hot and sunny day, I visited her while working on the new project in her house. From there we went to Mediamatic, the art center where it all started.
