    Chalk drawings

    Invited by Capacete and Fonds BKVB I have been drawing for 6 months on and around one long street, the Rua Santa Cristina on the Santa Teresa hill. The street runs past colonial homes, shops, an elementary car wash, a long staircase and a favela. The drawing touches on all these social layers.

    Moscou, Ghent - Belgium
    2007 - 2010
    Chalk drawings on public walls, private homes and interiors (with publication)

    Invited by S.M.A.K., the contemporary art museum in Ghent, I have been working in the working class neighbourhood Moscou (Gent Ledeberg) for several years, drawing throughout the area with blackboard chalk. I began drawing on industrial buildings and walls, without asking permission beforehand. To the people in Moscou I explained that chalk is an easily erasable material that washes away after it has been raining. Slowly, I became a known face in the area and succeeded in shifting the work to the facades and interiors of private homes.

    Oudenaarde, Belgium
    2009
    Chalk drawing on church

    Invited by the organisation VersusV I made site specific drawings, as part of a group exhibition. Right before the restoration of the Walburga Church at the central market of Oudenaarde, a drawing of chalk lines frames the sediments (like soot and other pollution) on the building. Where the restoration aims to 'clean' the building, it will also polish away a very thin layer of history. The frame of chalk lines brings a homage to this history, it highlights the unwanted dirt. The drawing is spread over the entire market side of the church.

    Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean
    2007
    Chalk drawings on roads, buildings and in private homes

    On Curaçao I worked for five months as the first guest of the new Instituto Buena Bista (IBB / international studio Fonds BKVB, Feb. - June 2007). I made several series of chalk drawings, including a drawing on an old water tower, a drawing on the back of an abandoned colonial building, on the walls of a psychiatric institution and on several roads. Commissioned by the dutch / curaçaoan architect Carlos Weber I made large drawings on the interior of his new residential villa.
