Meeting point: Vlissingen train station
On Sunday June 25, Dani Ploeger used the city of Vlissingen as his public exhibition space and guided the participants of this excursion along several of his works installed in the coastal city for SYDGL#10.
For his SYDGL the group met at the train station of Vlissingen at 14:00. They continued the tour by water taxi to visit a former World War II bunker, after a short stop they concluded the tour with a visit to the space where all of Ploeger’s ideas take shape – his studio in Willem3. During the excursion the artist stopped at each location and elaborated on the relation it has to his art and practice.
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.
