Can i call you back boy, I have something to say.
Part of the project “Room for space.”
I called out to the guys hanging out at my work. How dare you ruin my art piece!!?
What if you as a maker have taken the freedom to change something in a public space with your work, should this public space also have the freedom to change this work? With three pieces of fabric, I changed the bicycle tunnel of the Parnassiaweg. There was tapping and playing until one boy fell. A knot was made in my work and people where hanging in it. I was told I had to remove the work.
As a maker, what conversation do you have with the environment, and how does the untouchable image of the artwork work in public space?
Can I call you back boy? I have something to say!
“How can you use the street as a public space, instead of a utensil to go from A to B. How you become consciously and actively aware of your presence in the public space. Individual gestures by different artists. A collective intervening of your daily routes throughout the city. To tilt your perspective in order to create a different awareness of where you are. Your location mostly finds its meaning in relation to where you’re heading.
We want to tilt that indication of your location and it to be just this moment.
Creating room for space.
An ongoing and growing project as well online as offline. Documenting works pre- sented on the street in relation to create room for space. You can stumble upon the works, or look up them on the digi- tal map. Temporarily performances, works that will be there forever, and everything in between. These artworks as poetic inter- ventions of daily routes, are documented and been given a platform by this project.”
