Philip Horst - Boxed
Sky Limit 2008
A large wooden box, typical for shipping art works, was manufactured by a local woodshop. A white male was then transported inside the box on a horse truck through the streets of Lahore.
After arriving in the walled city, the box is carried by four men through the lanes
of the old city, joining the many cardboard-box-carriers.
At Sky limit platform the box is put to the ground, opened and the white european man is stepping out of the box.
Boxed was documented by video cameras inside and outside the box, edited to a 3 min video; shown at sky limit Platform as a small scale projection on a wall from inside the box.
