Ondertussen: Ingrid Mol

September 22 thru November 4, 2007
Location: Hogewal 1-9

The former reception area of Stroom has been converted into a small exhibition space. On a regular basis there are presentations of artists who have received a subsidy in the categories Stroom PRO- and SPOT-grants. The informal exhibitions and presentations are intended to illustrate the diversity of the Stroom grant system. The program in the space is called Ondertussen (Meanwhile).

The Kleine Biënnale (Small Biennial) is a bi-annual art event aimed at everyone from the age of 7. For this exhibition artists are invited to create new work especially aimed at the world of children. In 2006 the exhibition took place in a 19th century fortress near Utrecht in the Netherlands.

For this edition the artist Ingrid Mol made the installation ‘Memories of Ralph Lepaert, guard of the fortress'. In a theatrical setting complete with sculptures, film sets and drawings the fictional story is told of a guard who, from his controlroom, observes and records the world outside.

It is an installation in two parts: there is a 'gas station' on the hills of the fortress complete with insectlike motorbikes and a bikerboy hanging around. Inside the fortress, in one of the bunkers, an office has been installed with monitors observing everything happening in and around the fortress. The monitors present cartoon-like drawings of the world outside.

In 2006 Ingrid Mol received a Stroom PRO Art project subsidy for this project.
