‘een mooi hallucinerend houtskoolsprookje,
het had nog wel een kwartier langer mogen duren..’
– Paul van der Steen (karikaturist en illustrator van onder andere Het Parool) –
Frouke Wiarda with Jet Nijkamp
Charcoal is a project in which three art-disciplines meet. During the 10 days art-fair ‘KunstVlaai’ (ArtPie) in Amsterdam, drawing-artist Jet Nijkamp transformed the interior walls of a square box into a large Charcoal drawing. Frouke Wiarda recorded the sounds of the scratching and dashing charcoal, found all the autonomous overtones in every piece and segment. By re-arranging the separated, she composed new sound formula’s and played them back in the box. The micro- and macroscopic visual perception of charcoal was explored and projected by filmmaker Toon de Zoeten. In this performance and visual concert we let the visitors descend into the charcoal drawing.
