Guido van der Werve, Nummer zeventien (still)
Nummer 17 - Killing time attempt one: from the deepest ocean to the highest mountain.
 
In Nummer zeventien killing time attempt one: from the deepest ocean to the highest mountain, physical exertion and sport once more play a central role.Van der Werve’s creative language in fact continues to develop alongside his sporting activity: since 2007 he has been competing at an international level in a number of marathons. In the work presented here, van der Werve aims to emulate two extreme sporting achievements: the climbing of Mount Everest (mt. 8848) and the descent into the deepest ocean abyss 11040– two feats that contrast both starkly and ironically with the domestic surroundings chosen for the filming.
