Ahmet Öğüt: Castle on a Giant Balloon

Turkish artist Ahmet Öğüt created a gigantic helium balloon in the shape of Magritte’s floating rock, as part of an outdoor installation for Belgian art festival, TRACK: a contemporary city conversation in Ghent. Ahmet replaced the mysterious castle on top of the rock with a replica of the Vooruit building, a cooperative where the working-class people of Ghent assembled from the end of the nineteenth century until the early 1970s and which ran both a centre for festive occasions and a newspaper .
