GO AWAY SORROW OF THE WORLDIn this photo blog you can follow Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert as they travel around the globe to spread their message 'GO AWAY SORROW OF THE WORLD'. With a little wooden suitcase as their only weapon they try to make the world a better place. Each time they present their suitcase the message is translated in the local language. Whenever they unfold their suitcase and someone (or something) reads the message, or even thinks the message, a vibration is send into the universe.
Just like monks that repetitively chant the same phrases over and over again, R&F F&R are repeating the action of unfolding and presenting the message in different places and contexts. They plan to do this for as long as possible (maybe a lifetime...)
On every spot F&R R&F print a postcard of the action (with a little portable printer) and sent it from the location to their atelier address in Ghent. The marked and stamped postcards are the certificate and proof of the action. Scroll down to see all the postcards.
Very first montage of actions in Hong Kong, Guangzhou (China), Skaland (Norway), Keulen (Germany), Belfast (UK), Rotterdam (Netherlands) Brussels (Belgium) can be seen here.
