Paradise Lost # Escaping the city = exhibition at PMB Amsterdam -june 2016- dec 2016

“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on.”

Haruki Murakami Kafka on the shore

So i asked two artists to think about the tense relationship between escapism, refugism and the city. Are you fleeing from the city, or the other way around, or are you diving in as if it were a big blue carribean sea when temepratures are rising...
What paradise are people looking for? What does this dreamy, beautiful place look like? That resulted in three video works, some stories, some pictures, some reactions on a blackboard, a palmtree in my narrow corridor and a lot of time spend at Sloterdijk station.

The exhibition functions as a trilogy.
In december some short stories will be released, and printed on demand.
