Two images of two drawings I produced yesterday. The ‘ Mijn ijskast is uw ijskast’ (my fridge is your fridge) comes from a conversation during one of the dinners with our guests for the I.B.B. I realized that moment that me and my wife Nancy, we were so many times host/ess. That’s a beautiful thing to cook and eat with friends, colleagues, students and offer them hospitality. We enjoy this intense social life. At this moment, beside our guests in the ‘artist in residence’ program Bart Lodewijks and Daniëlle van Zuijlen, we have our first guest for the International Project Space; Honoré d’O from Belgium. I am literally honored to have these special people overhere on our Rock Korsou (Curaçao).Daniëlle and Bart have made a start in our studio spaces and presented themselves to our pupils and taught the other day in the ‘Scharloo’ neighbourhood as well, which is the hood of our new grand accommodation. (www.institutobuenabista.com) They got the pupils investigate the new building, garden and neighbourhood by digital camera(will be continued).
The honorable Honoré has arrived this week and found directly his way on the island. The master of visual poetic gesture inhales as always curious and very amazed the new situation: ‘flavour Korsou’
