Dead Disco

Distorted disco balls form the installation ‘Quelle Fête’ by art collective Rotganzen. The Rotterdam-based group consists of Dutch artists Robin Stam, Joeri Horstink and Mark van Wijk. This piece is both absurd and beautiful, and it embodies the ultimate party detritus. Remember how, if you had a birthday party with balloons, the balloons would later go all gross and flaccid, with bits of dust sticking to them? Eventually you’d get tired of seeing them, and you’d pop the balloons and throw them away. These floppy mirror balls are like a glamourous, grown-up version of that – they’re kind of sad and deflated, but they retain a comedy element which makes the whole installation so playful and fun.
