Karl Philips - Renault Trafic - Mind the System, Find the Gap | Z33

Interview about ' Renault Trafic' by Karl Philips. Part of the exhibition Mind the System, Find the Gap (02.06-30.09.2012) For Renault Trafic, Karl Philips drove three old Renaults to the Bois de Boulogne, near Paris. By day, this park is the ideal get-away for hikers, joggers and day-trippers. At night, numerous parked vans -- mainly Renault Trafics with flat or even no tyres -- function as illegal prostitution squats. With Renault Trafic Philips addresses strategies of survival of minorities within dominant systems. The Bois de Boulogne is -- for the greater part - inhabited by Parisian outcasts, homeless people and drug addicts who are trying to survive in the shrubbery alongside the trail walks. With his intervention, Philips enters a social reality and changes a number of elements in its chaotic structure. He refrains from acting as a cultural therapist, however, limiting himself to showing the pragmatics of day-to-day life. Philips parked three customized (and welded shut) Renault Trafics as sculptural elements between the other vans -- a scene for the unknowing actors: "On the street, the three Renault Trafics function as a space, a stage-set for an unconscious performance, performed by an unknown cast." -- publication Onomatopee www.z33.be
