Allard Van Hoorn
(re-) Creating History

This project is all about the paradox of history, the encounter and tourism. When I traveled to the outskirts of Mongolia to discover those who had never been in contact with the outside world I was hoping for authenticity, the 'real'. Now, I realize that by succeeding in finding I instantly destroyed what I was looking for. This project is the re-enactment of these scenes set on the border with Kazakhstan 11 years ago.
This project is a collaboration between Arts
Connection and The Moore Space
