Artis Den Bosch stopt!

logo-Artis

Today this came to my attention: Artis Den Bosch is closing its doors permanently!

From their website:

16 februari 2010 t/m 16 februari 2012
ARTIS GAAT STOPPEN
geen 25 jaar voor ARTIS

Op 11 februari 2010 heeft het bestuur door middel van een brief aan het College van B & W van ‘s-Hertogenbosch laten weten te gaan stoppen wegens intrekking van subsidies.

Artis Den Bosch has been one of the best artists initiatives around. What a shame!

‘Relocated houses, Brittons yard’ (2009) by Lara Almarcegui.

On the outskirts of the city of Wellington (NZ) there is a weird collection of houses. The houses are moved there from different places and on display, waiting to be sold (housemoving is a common occurance in New Zealand). The result is a ghost-town like street with empty buildings, some in state of disrepair.

Lara Almarcegui traced the roots of each building in this street. For the One Day Sculpture project she created a tour and a catalogue showing the individual stories and memories connected to each house. By inviting people to visit the yard with her one evening, Almarcegui coaxes us to look not simply at what these buildings are but why and how they are here, and in turn to speculate on the processes of change in our environment.
