A wood-burning car, a self-constructed aeroplane and a bicycle that rides backwards. Joost Conijn (Amsterdam, 1971) builds vehicles and travels with them to the fringes of ‘modern’ civilisation. He records his experiences and encounters along the way on video.
The people he comes across take him, his vehicle and his camera to their hearts. The viewer thus gains access to an unconventional reality that is at once infectious and confrontational.
