Sunday 25 February 2018
1 – 2:30 pm
On Sunday February 25, artist Jorieke Rottier guided all participants through Vlissingen. The artist introduced her edition of SYDGL: "I would like to invite people to explore the city of Vlissingen near the sea, and visit the places that influence me and my art practice. Doing so, I hope to provide some insight into my views and thoughts, and how this place has a role in my works of art". Rottier developed a special publication for SYDGL #16, which was handed out to participant during the excursion.
Vleeshal is an internationally oriented center for contemporary art, rooted in Zeeland. In Zeeland Focus, Vleeshal highlights regional artists, takes part in and celebrates local contemporary art and culture.
For So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood Vleeshal invited artists from Zeeland to take on the role of a compass and guide their audience to interesting and inspiring places in Zeeland. The title comes from the English translation of Patrick Modiano’s book Pour que tu ne te perds pas dans le quartier written in 2014, the year Modiano won the Nobel Prize in Literature. This series took place from 2015-2018.
