From 6 till 10 february the Re:Rotterdam art fair took place. A fair for small galleries and individual artists. My personal booth showed the series of works under the name ‘Remains/Stolen footage’
The works of this series are an ongoing project based on remains from the installing of works of artists as Angela Bulloch, Qui Zhijie and Erik van Lieshout at Witte de with, the institute where I work as a freelancer for the technical crew. The remains contain pieces of paper that where used to protect the floor or pieces of temporary walls around a video presentation. I have not changed anything, except for making the cut-outs.
The work researches my position towards the institute as well as towards the artists that showed their work there at that particular time. While working there, the institute also provides me with materials to work with, created during the installation-period by me and my colleagues.
I’m very happy to say I was nominated for best presentation and got a very nice remark from my friends of Trendbeheer! And next to that a lot of very nice comments from a lot of my visitors, colleagues and others.
