Sur la route – SMAK Ghent
In 2007, a stage of the Tour de France arrived in Ghent. SMAK asked 20 artists to each ride a stage of the tour and to make an artistic report of it. I drove from Gap to Marseille. Upon arrival, I photographed the setting sun and processed these images into a Timescape. The works were presented all over the city in 20 supporters’ cafes. On various TV screens in the café, the broadcast of the Tour de France was alternated with landscape photos that were provided with GPS coordinates. That day, Gert Steegmans defeated his own captain Tom Bonen in the sprint on the Charles Dekerckhovenlaan.
