Q-fever
21 June - 13 July 2008

This work was part of Jong Land/ Young Land at Annapaulowna, in The Netherlands, this group show was curated by artist Arjan Brentjes.

For three weeks I was working in this former school. In and around the building I collected materials that I brought to a class room appointed for my work.

All these materials were silent witnesses from a past and breathing the times when the school was still functioning. At the same time their future was unknown and together with the inhabitants waiting for a new perspective.

In an attempt to study this reality I decided to maximize the experience you would get while entering the class room. The architecture was so to say my canvas and the materials could be seen as paint.

As a whole I tried to create an abstract environment with undefined information, with the intention to confuse viewers and renew their view and experience of this particular space.
