Philippe Parreno, No More Reality
Aleksandra Mir,’First Woman on the Moon’ (1999)
The day when heavy machinery and manpower transformed a Dutch beach into a lunar landscape of hills and craters. At sunset the labor stopped, and a live drum beat announced the ceremony of a woman, gracing this imaginary moon with an American flag. The same evening, while the party still went on, the landscape was flattened out again, leaving no physical trace of the event behind - save the memories and a story to tell future generations.
