May 20, 2018
After a walk in the park I joined Platforms Project again to finish our project. On this day a lot of performances took place of which I missed some, but I think I caught the most of it. Here’s an account of the last day:
The park near Syntagma was beautiful with the purple flowers falling
All of a sudden I was pointed at the Republic of Banania that was cutting a litttle book of mine to have a passport photo. Now someone is having a passport with a painting of Ezra Pound!
Across, around the corner someone installed this piece at the 24 hours project
This also is a nice casual intallation at Ormston House, from Ireland
From Canada AKA & UAS presented Walter Scott with great contemporary drawing.
Of course Guillaume Krick was present again, his platform Bureau d’Art et de Recherche presented his 3D work and that of Clara Juliane Glauert. Here Guillaume performs inspired by his sculpture!
The great Linda Weiss shows her work with Scotty from Berlin
And of course our friends from the Bcademie had their ways of making fun again, they organized a lottery: for € 2,- one could buy one of the obects on the floor. If it had a sticker on the back, you could take your pick…
out of these art works. I tried several times but was not lucky, though I would have liked very much to pick…
This tongue in cheek work by Daan den Houter
or this great drawing by Lisa Blauwbroek
One of these by Tjalling Mulder would have been nice too, but alas….
Our friends of the Milena Project were present again
with this Utopia-project
and this example of “Belgicisme” that I liked a lot: pins sticking in the sleeves, letters as an invitation to shake hands by reading…
In the end I completed the Athens Diary, which makes for a fine set of drawings
The public wouldn’t stop gluing
And still some performances were due, here three ladies entered singing orthodox song while a performer creeped to the exit in sheets
like a snail trying to get out…
After Hours: I forgot to take a picture of the great piece of Gianin Conrad at Diensgebäude, probably because we saw it all the time
And I liked it every time!
Of Course Rosa Lux was also present with work by Tony Domingos
And this project was also worth wile: Danae Stratou at Vital Space created this beautiful site-specific installation of which documentation was presented.
The Milena Project showed this last minute performance by this classical dancer
Next to us was an installation by Angela Brisnovali at LaLa Artgroup from Greece that I liked more and more
Especially this work on paper
And finally our last collage was taken off the wall
And put into the pool
After which everything was displayed
The day and Platforms Project 2018 ended in music and dance, next morning early I would return home!
