Border Match
Personal — 2015

Border Match was a performance art piece where a football pitch was made right on the border between two Dutch provinces (Noord-Brabant and Limburg) in September 2015. The two provinces are known to be rivals, yet their border is invisible.

The imperfect field crossed a ditch and a piece of forest to symbolise the obstacles both residents have to overcome, despite of their origins.

The pitch was opened with a match between the two provinces resulting in a 3 – 3 draw. A special merged outfit for the match symbolises the fraternisation of the two teams.

The installation was part of festival: Schijt aan de Grens.
