Frosty’s lament at Galerie Bernard Jordan in Paris

 

This selection of drawings was shown at Gallery Bernard Jordan  between November 16 and December 21 2019 under the title Frosty’s lament.

The drawings ÖIL, Latrodectus & Rats get fat while good chicks die feature a building that is called the Taubanesentralen in Longyearbyen in Svalbard where I spend time in Galleri Svalbard in the summer of 2018. This building was once the pivot for the cable-ways to transport coal from the mines to the harbor. The building has now lost its function because coal mining in Longyearbyen has been brought to an end, apart from one remaining mine,‘gruve 7’, mine 7 in Adventdalen, which still operates on a comparatively small scale.

I HAVE NOTHING TO SELL

On February 1, 2019 I was interviewed by Peter Nijenhuis for his blog De Wereld Werkt in Arnhem. Our conversation about drawing in general and more specifically the drawings I made as a result of my residency in Svalbard was published on his blog under the title I HAVE NOTHING TO SELL.

Many thanks to: Peter Nijenhuis and Chris Kennedy
