Aanleiding

“Na een lange periode van voorbereidingen voor projecten in de (verre) toekomst en digitale afspraken, had ik het verlangen iets concreets te maken en het in mijn handen te kunnen houden. Dit kleine werk komt voort uit die wens en uit de specifieke leefomstandigheden in tijden van pandemie.”

Artikel

The paper band holds together an accordion of images. As I touch the paper, I am moved by this small gesture of art. The gift makes me smile, I feel like receiving a love letter. I feel oscillation inside my body, excitement and curiosity mingles. I slide the paper band to the top. A sidewalk appears.

I turn the last page and I am back at the beginning. This booklet turns just like the earth we are walking on.

Hoofwijk’s On a Monday I walked on the same Earth as you demonstrates such an attitude of walking and thinking that enables us – both artist and spectator – to acknowledge, express, experience and resonate (with) certain elements of the current situation, that cannot be grasped in concepts or even words. It reveals how we are condemned to slowly move, in order to cope with the motionlessness of the societal situation.
