K.F. Hein Kunstparticipatieproject, 2019

‘Vensters’ was made for the K.F. Hein Fund art participation project and was born out of the things I saw and drew during a series of visits to the Sint Pieters and Bloklands Gasthuis; a carehome in Amersfoort.

‘Vensters’ can be described as a poetic ‘frame story’ (raamvertelling) about the elusiveness of dementia. By playing with transparency, collage-elements and fragility, the used materials enhance the narrative of the work. I want to invite the onlooker to get lost in the drawings- to walk in between the works, to look closer, to wonder. What does it mean to deal with dementia and slowly lose your grip on reality?

The work was made especially for this place in the building, inspired by the existing lightfall. For the realisation of this project I collaborated with designer Bart Schalekamp.
