Kolks told me, "I very much like the contrast between its luxurious/decadent looks (limousine) and the clumsy way it moves through the water when used."
(Kolks said the art object boat is "solid" but "not seaworthy." It´s headed back to Rotterdam where the artist built it himself for 2,500 Euros in material and three months´ labor at two to three days a week in his studio.)
"Private Investigations" is public art, said Kolks in an e-mail interview.
"I guess I´m fascinated by the carelessness of quite some people when it comes to privacy nowadays; exposure seems to be all.
"'Private Investigations' aims at being a very personal experience in a very public environment."
Asked where he plans to exhibit "Private Investigations," next, Kolks said the canals of Amsterdam or Venice are ideal.
