Ferdinand van Dieten Gallery, Amsterdam
These wooden sticks have their own history.
One stick traveled to Botswana. One stick traveled to the Carribean. One stick traveled to New York. When people asked me: do you use it for fishing- do you use it for fighting...then I made images according to the suggestions of these others.
Seen and judged by different persons these wooden sticks became different objects each time. Diverse stories circle around these sticks. They have become a place of meaning. Like on an expedition I go out to find different areas in my mind from where I can look and maybe see what is in front of me. In order to find positions to look I take measures of personal research.
