The Adventurous Endeavours of Joost Conijn. Potentialities of Autonomous Travel through Life
(Jellichje Reijnders) The Low Countries - 2006, № 14, pp. 26-34
Joost Conijn's work is prompted by his desire to move from one place to another under his own steam. This independent attitude characterises the way he moves through life, through the world, through the air. Driven by his urge for freedom and with adventure as his aim, he heads for the unexpected. Joost Conijn has made films in which he undertakes journeys in vehicles he has constructed himself – an aeroplane, a wooden car – and in which he follows seven feral children on their explorations in the area between a city and a free state. Travel as a sequence of unprecedented events, sparked off by his fascination with people and cultures that do not allow themselves to be dominated by prevailing doctrines.
