During this episode of So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood, Roos Nieboer invited her audience to join her at the Veerse Gatdam, near the lake of Veere. Because of its vastness, this place is not just visually interesting, but also offers the possibility of openness. During the excursion, Nieboer shared parts of her performances and texts to offer more insight into her way of working. "Special places are often the starting point of a new work, and this particular place near the Veerse Gatdam has always stuck by me", said Nieboer.


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.
