The Roadside Museum



The Roadside Museum is an experimental project for artists with a critical interest in fast forwarding the ageing process of their work through biological and chemical decay.


On May 25, Topp & Dubio's artist book 'All your favourite projects' was buried unprotected at Pool Hey Farm at a depth of up to 6 feet. The site was chosen due to its location in a high water table with acidic soil which will accelerate the degradation process. The field in question is low input grassland grazed by livestock and has been permanent pasture for 15 years.


Participating artists: Sarah Carne, Graham Dunning, Barbara Ekström, Stig Evans, Veronika Lukasova, Fred Martin, Samira Shafiei Nejad, Riitta Oittinen, Raksha Patel, Peter Trukenbrod, Alana Tyson, Chris Wood and Topp & Dubio.


Works will remain in the ground for 12 months whilst the above and surrounding land continues to be farmed. Simultaneously to the burial on Pool Hey Farm, Topp & Dubio have buried another copy at the Malieveld in The Hague.
