About this work

This edition was made for the exhibition “Christophe Terlinden, mais pourquoi?”, held at the Museum of Contemporary Arts – MAC’s, Grand-Hornu in 2011. It is representative of the approach of Christophe Terlinden, who proceeds with a certain malice proper to childhood, proposing seemingly innocuous gestures that often have wider political or social dimensions. Parodying common materialistic dreams, of “when we will be rich,” under a golden truck that seems to have been drawn by a child, Christophe Terlinden has annotated in pencil the ironic phrase “when we will be poor, we will live in a barrack on a slag heap “; with highly minimal formal means, his works are rich in meaning.
