A Lamp, a Chair, a Rock… 2010

A site-specific temporary intervention at the foot of the Waterberg, Namibia.
Medium: Masking Tape on rock
Artist: Imke Rust

A symbolically significant location in the Namibian bush, on the slopes of the Waterberg Mountains where the historical battle between the German colonial troops and the Hereros has been fought in 1904, was used for my temporary land art intervention. Ideograms representing European everyday life (light, electricity and a chair) were drawn with masking tape onto a large rock in the middle of the wilderness, photographed and shortly afterwards removed again.

This artwork has been created on the Waterberg Wilderness Lodge and has been removed after documentation.
