IJsselse Evacuatie Werken

“IJsselse Evacuatie Werken kazerne Worp”

Evacuation Works for the River IJssel base Worp

july 2012. For the public exhibition “Hoog Water” in Deventer.

Across the river IJssel lays the township Worp with a beautifull park and a famous hotel. Once in a while the river rises and floods the area.

I made an evacuation kazerne which houses an 8-wheeled amphibious vehicle, a so called Argocat. These vehicles are used by hunters in Canada and are (strangely, due to our wetlands) practicly unknown in the Netherlands.

I found one on ebay in Battle, Sussex, UK, transported it to my studio and converted into a “rescue vehicle”
