A Scene #20

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 2:20 PM (CET) I will be standing in the aisle of a flying Boeing 767-300, between the Netherlands and Iceland.
With my eyes closed, my arms beside my body, I will for 15 minutes contemplate the enormity of the ocean below.

In memory of Antoinette Reumer.

Maumont is a small village in the Perigord in France.

Today many inhabitants are pensioners coming from other (Western European) countries. Twenty years ago you could still smell the farms everywhere. Herds of cows and sheep were led through the village every day. Nowadays you mainly see quads, mountain bikes and parents, leading their children on donkeys.
The village has changed from a place where everything was related to soil, work, growth and the seasons, to a place where the inhabitants mainly stroll, relax and dream. Continue reading

A Scene #19: Doubts

This is an invitation to join a scene! Be at the exact spot at the exact time and contribute to the scene with your own simultaneous activity (or inactivity).

On Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 2:20 PM (CEST) I am in the middle of a field at Ons Park, Feijenoordstraat, 3071 LN Rotterdam, (51 ° 54’53.5 “N 4 ° 29’50.4” E).
I will consider the direction where I came from and I will consider and reconsider where to go from there.
When I have made a decision, I will leave in a chosen direction.

The shortest connection between two points is a straight line. If there are more points, it becomes a web. Some connections are used intensively, others remain in the periphery.
With the MÊKH-WEB-exhibition, EX-MÊKH will map the network, built in 13 years.

An exhibition with work by EX-MÊKH (Ellen Rodenberg, Maarten Schepers, Kees Koomen) and guest artists Marian Wijnvoord, Niels Post and Frans van Lent.

During the exhibition I will perform every day at unannounced moments.

Opened: Fri, Sat, Sun: 1pm-5pm
Fri. 27 Sept.: 1pm-5pm and 7pm-11pm.
