Stand-in Arctic Tern

October 5, 2014, 13:30 hr. at Weststraat 18, Burgh Haamstede, The Netherlands
Opening with films, music and new presentations of the researches. 
 
During the five year project of ‘De Bewaerschole’ my intention is to map and investigate the international connections from an motile presence on the island Schouwen Duivenland; the Arctic Tern. A traveler who follows the sun and knows both, the North Pole and the South Pole. Every year he travels 70,000 to 80,000 kilometer.
 
"Like a tree as a silent witness to the place where it is rooted; I see the Arctic Tern as a travelling witness - the observer and the beholder of the magnitude of the earth and its changes."

Sheep


A journey from Inner Mongolia (China) to Mongolia, with as travel companion a sheep. 

For the Land Art Biennial Mongolia (LAM 2014), with this year's theme, the interaction between humans and animals, I went to Mongolia to bring a befriend artist a long promised gift. As a political choice I bought a sheep in Inner Mongolia (China), gave him the necessary medical checks a passport and trolley. As a symbol for a world wide endangered nomadic life I decided to risk the consequences of crossing the border. But the main intention for this journey is not to arrive, but to experience the special bound between human and animal if they have to rely on each other.
