Parasite Project

Mondriaan has a parasite glued to its face. This is a reminder that the modernist quest for a pure abstraction will always be corrupted by parasites and noise. 

Just like the rigid functionalist ideals underlying the architecture of the post-war city district Presikhaaf (homeground of Spatie) will inevitably be corrupted by its users.

Zinedepo and Motel Spatie have worked together to transform the image of the parasite, from that of an unwelcome, harmful and dangerous intrudor into an image that provides a postive and creative contrast against rigid, overregulated theories and systems.
