Between the Soup and the Potatoes / 2018 / duo exhibition with Rosa Sijben / presented at Billytown - The Kitchen, The Hague (NL)

30 Nov - 12 Jan 2019

During a performance, while you are waiting for something to happen, it happens. While you are making art, you make other art. Sometimes there is nothing between some things, but that's something too! 'Between the Soup and the Potatoes' is a Flemish expression which means 'to do something quickly in between other things'. We want to recognize the curious moments in between, to bring our attention to this void and its joyful potential.

Here is a PDF of the floorplan for the exhibition.
