Last year three of my works were selected for the Festival de Artes Lanzarote & Fuerteventura 2020. Initiated by The Lacuna Studio’s in Lanzarote. The theme of the festival was Lost. Because of the COVID 19 pandemie it was not possible to exhibit the works for real. Instead of a physical presentation the organisation decided to transfer the exhibition into a digital art festival. Lacuna studio’s asked participating artists to think about activities around the festival. Because my works could not be presented for real, I decided to film my works in an lost enviroment during the first lockdown in The Netherlands. My artworks were placed in various situations around the street where I live, but they seem kind of lost. Lost in the silence of the pandemie, empty streets, quiet trainstations, people passing by without noticing the artworks. Because of the work is made with lost and found materials it seemed appropiate to use this setting. I even made a real presentation of 4 works on a deserted wall in back garden of a house nearby which was uninhabited at the time. For a moment it felt like a real art presentation. The video was posted on the YouTube canal of the ‘Lost’ festival by The lacuna studios.

The works look beautifull in the surrounding in which they are shown. Lovely sneak views of the artist and his work. The movie is a bit overwhelming, so many shots, so many angles. But gives also some hope. It shows very well what a pandemic does to people.

Veel dank Marjan! It was a reality check to be out on the empty and quiet streets with my artworks in this setting. It felt really lost.
