Sylvie Zijlmans (Geertruidenberg 1964) and Hewald Jongenelis (Etten-Leur 1962) make everyday life in a suburb of a sprawling Dutch town into a metaphor of the times. An artwork inspired by local issues that could have landed anywhere at the same time.Films of the performances, in which a series of topical, bizarre phenomena occur, are directed in detail. The sound is so clear you can almost touch it.
In the exhibition is also video art of this duo The Idea of Freedom. A man pushes a car along a country road. The doors continually open and close while rubbish is thrown from the car. It slowly disappears from view and leaves behind a trail of litter: the licence many take to throw out everything, unfiltered, and break into someone else’s universe with uncalled for, uninteresting and unfounded things.
This exhibition is on view in the Bodon Galleries of the museum.
