Found a fossil today at Zandmotor. Wonder what it is? A phalanx of a…?

09062020: According to Dick Mol: ” This most resembles a second phalange, of the toe of a wild horse. Seems to be about 40,000 years old. From the ice age.”
Prehistoric cave drawings depict wild horses, some 15,000 – 39,000 years ago.

In context: Zandmotor, where narratives of pre-human nature meet the narratives of humanity. Zandmotor did not exists and will ‘dissolve’.
A ‘mare incognita’, unchartered and ephemeral new land in/of the sea.
A void as source of inspiration.

In 2006 I co-founded as artist-curator the artists collective Satellietgroep. Since 2014 Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon.


Inspiration:
As a teenager I was fascinated by a photo of a moving rock, published in an edition of National Geographic Magazine (if I remember correctly). And that there was a myth surrounding these rocks. Nobody knew how or why they could move…
So the first time I traveled to the United Stated, I wanted to see this phenomenon with my own eyes and ‘Racetrack Valley in Death Valley’ became my destination. However, it proved out of reach for a ‘touristic visit’, so the myth and speculations continued… until recently.
But the seed was planted for my artistic practice, and I am still wondering how we perceive, interpret and represent the world around us.

Sailing stones, also known as sliding rocks, walking rocks, rolling stones, moving rocks or wandering rocks. Racetrack Playa, Death Valley. California.
