An acrobat in a circus is a traveler, going from place to place. Not a steady home but always on the move. After showing the Acrobat in The Netherlands, I tried to find options to put the Acrobat on tour. I showed it at different locations and settings in Germany and Belgium and finally I got the opportunity to show it in the country where I made it, in China. For China I choose for a yellow acrobat and a red background, revering to the red Chinese flag and the yellow stars. I was able to make these installations in Nanjing at JIWU Art Space in their courtyard (2016) and inside in ArtCN gallery in Shanghai (2017).
