Yasser Ballemans – (Cancelled)

The proposal: “The Painted Forest” is inspired by a Czech animation from the 1960s “Krtek malířem” (Mol Painter). In this animation, the animals paint a whole forest while a fox is sleeping. When the fox wakes up, he is so startled by the strange shapes and colors that he flees. The animals are now freed from the harassment of the fox. In my opinion, the ‘foxes’ in our concrete forest mainly work on the Zuidas (legal and banking district). During my residency I would like to investigate how the forest can inspire me to “moral development aid” for these companies. This development aid could consist of small artistic manifestations, parades and conversations developed during the residence.
