Reply To: Share some inspirations
Self-portraits of the Oude Westen neighborhood in Rotterdam.
A community art project in which a visual artist and writer visited 15 social meeting places in 1 neighborhood, to invite people to draw easy-to-draw abstract patterns on furniture and while drawing, to share their stories. The stories were written down and collected online. At the end of the tour there was a living exposition – with all the objects of the 15 places, guided tours in which some stories from the neighborhood were read and discussed in small groups and some performative moments inspired by the tour.
After the exposition the pieces of furniture returned to the different places, to take up their normal functions again, enriched by the memories and stories connected to the project.
