Taxi Detour PROJECT by Veronique de Jong, Chan Le Doux, Aniek Schiepers

The theme of the car refers to the celebrations of Saint Barbara, the patron saint of miners, which used to be one of the most important holidays in Limburg. However this holiday and the associated festivities disappeared from the calendar and from the collective memory in line with the closure of the coalmines.
The vehicle transmits the traces of this lost holiday and its customs to the present and into the local context through the global practice of urban guerilla knitting. //
