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

In preparation for my stay in Galleri Svalbard I visited the depots of the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam where they have the first (and second) edition of the book The true and perfect description of three voyages so strange and woonderfull, that the like hath neuer been heard of before: done and performed three yeares, one after the other, by the ships of Holland and Zeland, on the north sides of Norway, Muscouia, and Tartaria, towardsthe kingdomes of Cathaia & China by Gerrit de Veer. I later found out there is a Latin translation from 1598 in the library of Galleri Svalbard. The story is an account of Willem Barents and Jacob van Heemskerck’s ill-fated expedition of 1596, which saw its 17 members stranded on Nova Zembla for ten months during the polar winter. Before they stranded on Nova Zembla Barents discovered Bear Island and Spitsbergen by accident.
