WWWK was made specifically for the kunstvlaai event, which manifests itself as an alternative art-fair, featuring independent artists and artists-run initiatives. It is a work that deals with the “fair-like” aspect of this kind of exhibition and especially with the freak-show tradition and the artist as deviant. On the westerpark’s grounds, in the admission-free area, the artists placed their own fair stand. They stood inside their tent, dressed identically in a blue lycra suit, and with a half falafel ball placed on a bald spot above their foreheads.  In front of the tent was a structure- a cycling mechanism, inviting the visitors to pick a song out of a menu, and to pedal in order to hear the selected song. The pedaling would turn on the little lamps above the artists heads and as long the lights are on the artists sing the song. The pedaling task is not an easy one, and certain persistence and considerable effort are required to complete a whole song.
