Water te Water [Water to Water]
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0278).
Around 1970 Guy Mees experimented with performance and video. During that period, Mees performed Water te Water (Water to Water), a performance in which he translated his homeopathic visual language into an ecological and environmental gesture. Mees let a clear plastic globe filled with clean water drift on the polluted Gent-Terneuzen canal. The performance informed a poetic though thought-provoking commentary on the issues related to ecology, environmental policy and pollution that started to gain public attention in the late 1960s.
