Zebulon Zang
Volcanoes don’t make love with the stars
The Pole, Den Haag
May 7 – July 7, 2020


The flag has two images: the skeletal structure of a foot, and a diagram of lunar phases as they relate to the position of the earth.

These two parts of the flag turn on and off in relation to the sun.

What I mean is, the foot is printed with a glow in the dark medium that is mainly visible at night; the diagram is printed in UV reactive ink — invisible until hit by the sun, turning blue.

When you stand on the street and look up into the night sky you will see a glowing foot beside the light of the stars.

Zebulon Zang is an artist and filmmaker from Maillardville, Canada. His work is an ongoing investigation into the development and impact of mechanical reproduction, and its role in shifting fundamental aspects of experience, knowledge production, and historiography.  His projects focus on the phenomenological and social implications created by technological methods of seeing and remembering, with subjects ranging from the death masks of antiquity, to the data driven digital imaging of today. His work has been exhibited throughout North America and Asia, and has been supported by the B.C. Arts Council, The Russell Foundation, and The University of California. His debut feature film N.O.N. was screened as part of the 2018 Vancouver International Film Festival.
