Dissected Motorcycle

Van Mensvoort
February 18th 2014

Our peculiar image of the week is a motorcycle cut-up by artist Alexandra Bircken, which we can't help but interpret as a next nature version of the famous disected cow of Damien Hirst.

The dissected motorcycle learns us that, like in old nature, much of the inner workings of next nature are occluded to us. The cut-up motorcycle will be on display this spring at Museum Boymans van Beuningen.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
