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.

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

Blend

On Saturday, July 20,
between 14:00 and 15:00,
I will call you.

We will not speak.
Our telephones will be connected for 60 seconds, the loudspeakers on full volume.
The sounds of our surroundings will blend together, somewhere between us.

If you want to join this project send me your number (including country code) by email*.
I will schedule my call to you, and email you to notify you of the time.
Two minutes before my call, I will send a text to remind you.
I will record the sound of our call and the recording might be used in the online documentation of the project.

*Update July 10: Because of the amount of responses, it is no longer possible to register.

On Sunday 25 May I will, together with Elia Torrecilla,  perform at Art D’, Cicle d’Art Acció.
