Isle across the River Styx

Art installation at Xnoizz Festival in the Netherlands. The four days festival attracts about 12.000 visitors.

What happened?

Random visitors received a ticket for the Ferry across the Styx. The ferryman rowed his gondola with invitees across the water to an otherwise accessible isle. At the Isle across the Styx, secret festival artists gave intimate performances for the selected few.

Did it work?

Absolutely. Soon the word spread about the island and invitees were looked at jealously. The isle of heaven and the black gondola work as archetypal imagery of human hope for an exclusive life in the hereafter.
