John Berger explains in ‘Ways of Seeing’ that where and when we’re seeing something affects what wesee. A Way of Seeing is an artistic research project into the context of the art visit. How did a visitor end up here, how does someone leave? Unplanned, I accompany a spectator on an art visit. We speak each other before and after we’ve seen the artwork. This experience results in a text. I will write about the context of the visit, not about the work itself. These visits together, at different locations and of different work, become a collection of ways of seeing and put together an image that reflects the way we see art.
