Memory Knight at Art Rotterdam
From the 7th till the 10th of February 2008 Jeanne van Heeswijk presented her latest installation Memory Knight at the Art Rotterdam. The work is a reaction of Het Dwaallicht (Will o the whisp) on the recent demolishing of the New Crooswijk area in the north of Rotterdam.
In 2004 Van Heeswijk started with Het Dwaallicht project a search for the identity of this neighbourhood. While tearing down the old houses and moving out most of the current inhabitants, the area is now a days promoted by the property developers as a nostalgic place with history. After a solo at RAM Gallery at the Art Rotterdam, the installation Memory Knight will be shown at the Center for Visual Arts in 's-Hertogenbosch as part of the exhibition ANNO HIER.
