I was invited to join the Art project Zwaan kleef Aan (Come on, tag along to the Swan; a Dutch way of speaking: reacting on someone before/in front of you). Fourteen artists; a musician, dancer, photographer, writer, painter and many others, had to react substantive and/or illustrative on an artist who had been working before you. Each of us were assigned a disciple; I got “fashion”. We all had to work for one month at the site.
I had to react to two performances, one of Lorna Buckley and one of the de Droominee. These two performances were totally different; but for me there was a clear
connection between them. The Droominee invited the audience to return from heaven to earth and Lorna Buckley plunged us into a world of chaos and turmoil.
I wanted to freeze the moment between heaven and earth; the landing on earth of an object.
To create a “flop down” I bought two double duvets; it would give me a good start because of its volume for a “flop”. With needle and thread I made a soft sculpture; a piece of fashion too big for a real person. The sculpture seeks the suggestive limit of chaos and noise through fashion, character and object.
Death and destruction features heavily in the battles and wars all around us in the world, so the object is exhibited in an empty room. This gives the viewer the space to visualise this “frozen flop” at any rotten location on earth.
Here we are.
