InsideOut  is an ongoing art project by Baukje Spaltro in five fazes, covering the border between psychiatry and contemporary art, painting and community art in one. It is a landscape of moods, for more awareness and acceptance of our inner world, and started from the Frysian psychiatric community itself. This community with this cyclorama of 40 meters depict an unknown and inspiring inner world to the public. It shows the many talents within psychiatry and demonstrates what a community can achieve together. And a current inspiration in our society for more solidarity and contemporary art.

I made this work for the Artist Support Pledge exihibition in Amsterdam. Artist Support Pledge is a great initiative of solidarity between artists, collectors and art lovers. Solidarity and art are crucial especially in these days.
Due to COVID, many artists around the world have found themselves without work, commissions, technical support, gallery work, exhibitions and sales have disappeared. As help @matthewburrowsstudio started with this generous initiative of the #artistsupportpledge. In the Netherlands it’s initiated by Tinkebell, Mette Samkalden and De Balie. The artist posts images of his/her work to sell for no more than €200 each (shipping excluded). Now anyone can buy the work, because it’s sharp priced. Every time an artist reaches €1000 of sales they pledge to buy another artist’s work for €200.

City Sphere BEEK @ B53 Arnhem

An artist in residence, a presentation and an intervention in the contemporary art space B53, Broerenstraat 53 Arnhem(nl).

City Sphere BEEK 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. Artist Baukje Spaltro created the City Sphere Beek installation between 11 and 24 March 2019 in B53.

Local Intervention Wander through Language (Dwalen Door Taal)
Sunday 31st March 2019 artist Baukje Spaltro and writer Lilian Regtvoort organized a plea to the Genius Loci of Arnhem in image and language.

Seven local writers of Arnhem performed a spoken tribute to the city of Arnhem. With contributions by Annelies Ibes, Daphne Braafhart, Dorien de Keyzer, Lex Loman, Lilian Regtvoort, Misha from Merkom and Pompado (Spoken Word).  www.b53.nl  facebook.com/b53art  facebook.com/lilian.regtvoort   www.schrijverscafeoscar.nl  facebook.com/schrijverscafeoscar

04.2018   A painted investigation on the canvas, about the relation between crowdfunding and creating. Who decides? On the Dutch crowdfunding website voordekunst.nl, the project invited the public to buy a white canvas. Schwarzmalen obtained enough funding to start. Eight painters challenged the public with multiple-choice questions. The results affected the painting process of each painter. For five weeks the public and painters were connected by Schwarzmalen. City Sphere Platform One, is my investigation about the Genius Loci, the sense of Platform One, in the train station Amsterdam Zuid. A spot I frequently visited. I was interested in what would determinate my intuitive choices on the canvas; the context of Schwarzmalen (the questions/input of the public ), or the Genius Loci of the platform? The Schwarzmalen painters were: Marieke Hunze, Harke Kazemier, José Krijnen, Astrid Moors, Marja van Putten, Baukje Spaltro, Saskia Tannemaat and Rob Visje. Schwarzmalen is a project by Marja van Putten and Astrid Moors. Schwarzmalen 3 was a groupshow in Art Chapel (Amsterdam NL) in april 2018.  www.schwarzmalen.nl   www.kunstkapel.nl
