Frank Havermans: Artist in Residence at GM8
In the period February - March 2013 Frank Havermans (1967) worked as Artist in Residence at Cityscapes GM8.
the eyes of Frank Havermans the City is not the product of architects,
urban designers or developers. The City of Frank Havermans is an
independent being that forms and transforms itself in its own secret and
complex way. Over the years Frank Havermans investigated the secrets
and complexities of the city in a series of drawings and objects that
form an ongoing project on the city.
This time his exercise
departs from the empty Cityscapes Studio space with in it only three
austere objects by Gerrit Rietveld (remnants of the last Cityscapes
Exhibition): a steel table, a glass show-case and a wooden chair. Step
by step Frank will conquer this space and fill it with his dreams and
drawings on the secret life of the city. The result of the Residency of Frank Havermans in GM8 will be
presented on Friday 22 March.
