Intervention #9 Sylvie ZIjlmans & Hewald Jongenelis

Sylvie Zijlmans and Hewald Jongenelis invited ten friends in a meadow on ten consecutive days. They assembled the ten photographs of the ten meals to create a single image of a large feast. ‘Ten to One’ will be displayed from 28 February as a wall-sized installation.

In the installation ‘Ten to One’ Sylvie Zijlmans and Hewald Jongenelis present a large image of a feast. They had the guests’ outfits made by a hundred different tailors in Beijing. The artists use the fact that many Western commodities are made on the other side of the world as an opportunity for a personal introduction to these tailors, who normally remain anonymous.

The exhibition is accompanied by a magazine about the project with a text by Dirk van Weelden.

With the kind support of H+F Patronage and The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
