A comfortable bed wherever you go, who doesn’t dream of that?
With the help of Bert and Marjolijn I made a mobile bed at Rhizomatic. How do five beds become a trailer?
Here you can view the full program of Rhizomatic in April, where I am artist in residence as part of the cycle Repair Creations.
What happens if a house could be stacked upon a truck? Weird question for a Dutch person, but reality for Mongolian herdsmen.
What if your office was on the back of a horse? I do not know, but I am going to ask a nomad.
I read in ‘Het wilde oosten’ by Jill Lawless that Mongolians are allowed to place their ger just about anywhere.
Wouldn’t it be nice if your food followed you like a puppy? No more toiling with boats and trucks and shopping carts and bags.
This April: exhibition and residency at Rhizomatic, Amsterdam-Noord. Rhizomatic is a project space for artistic research and my host for April and November.
Imagine that our houses were as mobile as the Mongolian Ger. Then we would be able to select our own neighbours and mingle like a cocktail party.
What boundaries would you cross and what hidden treasures would you unearth? This November I am going to find out, by roaming through Amsterdam-North with my bike and mobile bed.
