alles gaat door
May 15 – July 11, 2021
Opening: Saturday May 15, 3 pm.
A special project on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition ‘everything goes on’ of Frans van Lent in Studio Seine, Rotterdam.
On Saturday, May 15, 2021, I will be walking in a rural area, somewhere in the south-western part of the Netherlands.
Anyone can call me between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM. I will not answer the phone, but instead, I will take a picture of what I am looking at at the moment. I send this photo to the number (via WhatsApp or Signal) that appeared on my phone.
Note: Make sure your number is visible to the recipient (do not call ‘anonymously’). Also make sure that the phone you are using is capable of receiving image files.
On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition, you can, if desired, later purchase your personal photo as a signed unique print.
3026 GC Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The work L’espace de vingt-quatre heures was the April cover of the Portuguese Umbigo Magazine.
For that occasion I was interviewed by Margarida Oliveira.
The text is also (online) published in Portuguese.

A Scene #29: the real world
On Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 2:20 PM (UTC + 1) I am at the door of a house,
Grotekersbuurt 36, in Dordrecht, the Netherlands (lat: 51.813892, long: 4.66324, alt: 0).
On the door is a poster, showing the exact location, date and time.
I’ll be at the door until the time runs out.
After taking this picture, I went to where the horizon touches the right-hand side of this work.
From there I walked to the left, to where the horizon touches the left-hand side.
Walking this line took 19 minutes and 24 seconds.
Route de Maumont
Participation to La Biennale de Momon.
Route de Maumont
For most of us, Maumont proved to be an impossible destination. We had to approach it by means of just our imagination. Knowing the village for so long, I created a walk to show the real Maumont from a distance in seven photo positions. As soon as we can travel again, we could walk this route to emphasize and celebrate the long unattainable heart of our project.
On mobile phone the file Route de Maumont is downloadable for offline use.
Leave was a performance, ending in a series of photographs.
During a walk, in private and public space, I focussed on leaving places.
I avoided experiencing my movements as arriving at a place.
