De zee is groen

leave a comment »

In the project ‘Uitgeschreven ruimte’ commissioned by BKKC in Tilburg, The Netherlands, artist Geert-Jan van Oostende and I realized an 11 meters long work on cloth. The project was an experiment in having poets and artists work together on creating a new work for the public space. It was funded by the Mondrian Fund and the Dutch foundation for literature. There is an exhibition of all the works created until January 27, and this specific work will remain on view permanently. Here is a view of sketch design and final work in situ. We were asked to make a work for the windows at the BKKC building and decided to stress a sense of surface without depth in both text and image. The text is my poem ‘De zee is groen’ composed around visual information from a Suske en Wiske comic book, the image is a shape created from the surface of Van Oostende’s working table.
