the book in the studio

the book in the exhibition Echoes of Artificial Landscapes (2014, Kabinetten van de Vleeshal, Middelburg)

In the summer of 2013 I bought a book from the seventies about the history of sailing. Following the migrantsproject I decided to colour the ships and crew on all pages black with permanent markers. After five months of work all the ships were black.

Later I bought exactly the same book, took it apart and framed some of the pages (2014). Now I am working on publishing a book based on this work.
