Over a period of seven weeks I invited seven female artist friends from different countries to stay with me – each one for one week – for an in-situ dialogue in Kunsthuis SYB. These artists are important personas in my life and practice. During this time, I was looking to bridge the physical distances that separate us and to examine notions such as: leisure and friendship and the lack of togetherness in today’s world. Our time together was meant to provide ideal conditions for communication, for projection of individual information, for collecting in order to create a greater whole – in order to look into how things are created and how we create things.The project is accompanied by a blog – a log of our moments together, a collection of information, experiences and emotion. In 2012 the artist book Exstatic+Streaming was published as a reflection upon this residency through texts and images.
Participating artists: Keren Benbenisty, Gaëlle Boucand, Rada Boukove, Halina Kliem, Shana Moulton and Anat Spiegel.
Zimmer for FAB was made possible with the support of Kunsthuis SYB, Mondriaan Fonds, Fonds BKVB and Institut Français des Pays-Bas.
