Solo Presentation at Kunstenaarsinitiatief DeLOODS
ABOUT MELDING 1503948
Kunstenaarsinitiatief DeLOODS has relaunched their project and exhibition program. Ruth de Vos, artist and writer, invited me (being artist - organiser) to come up with a projectplan for this pilot. For this exhibition, I decided to work with a piece I created for my project "A Proposal, I Suggest" in 2020 which has its origins in 2017. In 2022, I represent a few images that are equally a reconstruction, deconstruction and construction of that artwork. So, starting with an analogue photo (2017) to a site specific installation in public space (2020), I 'remade' this work into something new for DeLOODS.
The underlying questions I aim to pose with the work concern presentation and location, and also the role of documentation, and the essence or ontology of the artwork. Clearly, the imagery is familiar to each other, but how do they relate to each other? As copies, as reference, as a new layer, as new 'autonomous' works - or are they best together as a family?
Throughout the presentation, I invited people for private visits. We discussed the work and simultaneously sometimes almost anything but. I plan to create another written publication regarding the outcomes or things learned through those talks.
