New Riddles and Constellations IVKolderveen, Drenthe, The Netherlands (2008)
✳ Collaborators: Monique Besten, Christian French, Jason Ferguson
A artist-residency series facilitated by Monique Besten across venues in Europe. This edition brought three American artists to work alongside one another within an the old cheese factory of a rural Dutch community.
The materials used reference temporary shelters, transience, play, home, and familiarity. Reuse is an important part of our collaborative practice and we believe the creative process should be hinged on an everyday accessibility. Within this consumer culture we have an abundance of material that can be reused, and therefore, repurposed within the creative sphere. The environment of the installation points to the ability of everyday materials to be transformed into powerful metaphors of inter-relational experience.
