Plan of Invasion to Holland
Plan of Invasion to Holland was a project I developed in Amsterdam during a residency period at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten between 1996 and 1997.
The plan consisted of a group of actions –A Good Wooden Dog, The Invisible Tree and About Sinking– which followed the narrative structure of the classic short story: beginning, middle and end.
These actions were based on three objects (a decoy for dogs, an invisible tree and a model of a boat) which worked as props to incite conversation, each object an open-ended question.
Plan of Invasion to Holland was -next to my personal experience at the Rijksakademie- the beginning of my interest in processes of decolonisation in general, and in how they affect personal ways of relating to the social and natural environment.
