De Finale (The Finale)
his football field is flooded: you can only see the top slats of the goalposts. The ice caps are melting. You can’t play football here anymore. Maybe you could play a different game, though.

Between 2015 and 2017, Benjamin Verdonck realised a series of installations, actions, miniature shows and activities in which he tries to address the absence of a public debate on the inevitable changes gradually taking place in our ecosystem. Working title for this cycle was EVEN I MUST UNDERSTAND IT. His actions took different shapes throughout the process, like a representation, a lecture, an exhibition or an installation in public space.
