Room with a view (Real Stories from Life)

Amsterdam, 1997
ROOM6_real_b.jpg
In the months June and July 1997 the 'Room' was part of a exhibition entitled 'Grensvervaging' in the new exhibition space of the Foundation for Visual Art, Architecture and Design in Amsterdam. On the walls of the exhibition space the documentation of work by various artists had been hung. The 'Room' was not set up, but was folded up and put aside against the wall. In front of the 'Room' there was a table, behind which an actress Joke Tjalsma sat. She sat there every Tuesday from ten to five for four weeks long, to talk to visitors about the 'Room' and the problem of documentation. Based on these conversations and all the material gathered through the journey of ' Room with a View' and the life of an artist, Jeanne van Heeswijk wrote a 20-minute monologue played by Joke Tjalsma. This video was shown among others in Aubase Gallery, New York; Museum voor Moderne Kunst, Arnhem; Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery and Museo Alejandro Otero in Caracas.
