Le camion d’or

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.

The MAC’s is housed within the former Grand-Hornu colliery, a monument of European industrial heritage that was designated as UNESCO world heritage in 2012. Since the museum opened in 2002, it has welcomed over a million visitors, produced more than 85 exhibitions and promoted numerous artists from the region. Thanks to such major international artists as Anish Kapoor, Christian Boltanski, Guiseppe Penone and Tony Oursler, who presented their first major Belgian exhibitions here, the reputation of the MAC’s now extends well beyond Belgium’s borders. Drawing inspiration from the unique architecture and history of the Grand-Hornu site, its collection explores themes that have caught the attention of numerous contemporary artists, including memory, technology and community. Every day, the MAC’s offers free guided visits to its exhibitions. The entry ticket also provides access to the historic site of the former colliery and the design exhibitions organized by the CID, the Centre for Innovation and Design.
