Describe an Artist (Orginally in Dutch: Omschrijf een Kunstenaar)

In 1998, I traveled to various locations in cities in the Netherlands to ask the general public this question: Describe an Artist.



The artist is standing naked in front of the map of the Netherlands (and a part of Belgium). The map is colored. The artist herself is in black and white. And on her body are white labels with black texts. On them are the expressions of people describing an artist in Dutch. The postcards were made in 2000 by SBK Ag for my solo exhibition at De Volière (Outside in an aviary) in Hengelo, The Netherlands. You can choose which postcard you like to have. Either one with an empty backside. Or one with on the backside the exhibition details.
(Pack of 10 postcards→).
