‘Solar Safari’ hunts down Belgium’s finest photovoltaic compositions. In line with previous works and performances by Pieterjan Ginckels, this book is all about cultural archaeology and technological critique. The artist takes a field trip across Belgium, documenting the haphazard solar panel configurations on private rooftops, providing us with an exhaustive number of examples. His photographic evidence, paired with Instagram-mined wordiness, transforms and criticises the footage on the different levels at play. In addition to this chunk of geometric superficialism is an overview of ‘Speed Trips’, the performative sightseeing Ginckels has developed over the past decade.
