UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT KUNSTENLAB DEVENTER
Very first sketch drawing (detail), pencil on A4 art paper yeah!
Kunstenlab in the cool Deventer harbour area has offered me the amazing opportunity to realise my Project 72 (working title) in their project space and the big window in the Kunstenlab Alley next year. The soundscape to my installation will be composed by one of my oldest friends, musician, composer and director Folkert Buis.
The exhibition will take place from April 3 of next year, but the preparations have already started. Project 72, a homage to my father and the garage he and I grew up in, has an obvious link to the 'old-school' vintage-Alfa workshop Bella Macchina across the alley from Kunstenlab. Since their building will be demolished soon, we (Folkert and I) had to act fast in order to collect the typical garage sounds, images and used motor oil from there, that will find a way into my installations and drawings. That I drove a vintage Alfa myself when I was attending art academy is – well, if not serendipity, then at least a bonus! (MF)
'Shows' may entail anything from exhibitions of drawings and/or installations, say art, to poetry readings to music performances. We'll see.
