Sheep


A journey from Inner Mongolia (China) to Mongolia, with as travel companion a sheep. 

For the Land Art Biennial Mongolia (LAM 2014), with this year's theme, the interaction between humans and animals, I went to Mongolia to bring a befriend artist a long promised gift. As a political choice I bought a sheep in Inner Mongolia (China), gave him the necessary medical checks a passport and trolley. As a symbol for a world wide endangered nomadic life I decided to risk the consequences of crossing the border. But the main intention for this journey is not to arrive, but to experience the special bound between human and animal if they have to rely on each other.
