"In 2014, Erik Kessels' father suffered a stroke and since then he has been almost unable to speak or move. Before this, he was very active. His projects included examples of restoration of the Italian icon: the fiat 500 or topolino. Before his attack, he had completed four of these restorations and was working on a fifth, leaving the half-finished shell that still remains in his home.a.
With the Unfinished Father project, Erik Kessels plans to transport this latest topolin to Reggio Emilia and display it alongside the images his father made to document its restoration. For the artist, this work is about a man who just like his vehicle will never be complete, they remain unfinished. While movies and stories teach us that endings are very orderly and often happy, the truth is that everything ends abruptly, more or less in the middle. No matter how carefully planned and how precisely those plans are executed, there is no guarantee that they will reach the conclusion we expect.mos.
Similarly, the unfinished topolino is the reverse of his father's situation in life: he was a man who did not like to leave things undone. We can try to control our circumstances, but in the end they control us. "
