DE VOORTUINENEXPOSITIE at Langelobrink
A project together with Reinier Postma and Simon Wagter about several front yards in Langelobrink, Enschede. With seeing the subject as the art(-space) of the civilian we organized an event at location where we gave lectures about the the use of space, personal or emotional value and the flora. Ending with an small celebration for visitors and people from the neighbourhoud at the communal square to ask further questions or exchange experiences. With this some rather unexpected connections where made. The male resident of 42 told us earlier in the research that the people from 44 must be refugees, because refugees don't care about their frontgarden or communal space. At the celebration he could see that the woman of 44 was highly pregnant with two small kids, afterwards he proposed to help cultivating the frontgarden of 44.
