B53 Artist in Residency
During my 10-days long artist in residence at B53, I painted the City Sphere BEEK. B53 is a former art space, Broerenstraat 53 in Arnhem (nl). www.b53.nl
Wondering and walking in the Bovenbeekstraat and the Beekstraat to catch the genius loci, the sense of this street at that moment. I created this City Sphere in march 2019.
City Sphere BEEK – Local intervention DDT
City Sphere Beek is about the Genius Loci – the soul of the city- the sense of one particular street. It represents the identity of the Beekstraat in Arnhem, as a disputed space. An installation that challenges the viewer to look at their own place differently. To see and cherish the authentic of their own local identity.
Also at the end of my residency @B53 I set up a local intervention in collaboration with local writer Lilian Regtvoort. A painted and spoken plea to the Genius Loci of the Beekstraat in Arnhem. Together with local authors Lilian organized a Poetry Slam with the DDT installation. Seven word artists and local authors defined the local sense of that moment. each author wrote and performer a own spoken contribution about the Genius Loci of Arnhem. Al this works are represented by the DDT installation. DDT = Dwalen Door Taal, and means Wander Through Language.
