“Dirkie Sanchez” is an installation done by Joe and Mark Stead inside a vintage Airstream trailer.
As part of the Old Mac Daddy project initiated by the Daddy Long Legs hotel group, twelve Airstream trailers were parked on an apple farm outside Elgin, about 45km from Cape Town. This “trailer park” would be fully functional, with added bathrooms, a lounge and a “stoep” to ensure they were comfortable for the whole family on an extended stay in the countryside.
The trailers were awarded to artists based on submitted proposals. The Stead’s proposal can be viewed below.
