“Polifinario” – Galandart, Hamont, Belgium, 2008
The “Polifinario” is a fictional species that was conceived by the famous Dutch comedian Toon Hermans. The animal was brought to life in the monologue in his show in 1980.
Will Beckers has taken the call of the “Polifinario” and instead of depicting the fictional bird itself, has given us a glimpse of his conceptual habitat. The floating installation, over twenty metres in length, was a suspended landscape. Materials from and around the location were used for the work.
