Even if it's not true, it's well found / 2014 - ongoing / 5 sculptures and accompanying storytelling performances

Presented at: P/////AKT, Amsterdam (NL), 2017; That Might Be Right, Brussels (BE), 2017; Ludwig Forum, Aachen (DE), 2016; Showroom Mama, Rotterdam (NL), 2015; Tent, Rotterdam (NL), 2015; De Appel, Amsterdam (NL), 2015; Galerie van Gelder, Amsterdam (NL), 2015; Centrale Fies, Dro (IT), 2014;

Whenever the works are exhibited, I ask selected individuals to say what associations come to mind while looking at the abstract sculptures. From these conversations, fictional stories are composed and performed by the individuals and myself. These become the ‘true’ meanings of the works. The stories contain everything from personal memories and humorous experiences to sudden revelations and immediate curiosity.
