If Paradise Is Half As Nice #4

(date of exhibition: June 13 - 14 & 20 - 21, 2015)



The IPIHAN artists were invited to organize a similar event at 'De Lasloods' in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. This time it was an official event, making it possible to work on a larger scale. Contrary to previous editions, the building served as a temporary residence for the artists as well. Because the building - a former construction building, part of the shipyard at the city’s harbour - had been completely empty and stripped previously, the first days were spent on building an improvised kitchen, a living room, sleeping quarters, and a bar. Luckily, an electric hookup could be obtained from a neighbouring company. Drinking water was provided by a nearby yacht club. At this yacht club the artists also could make use of the showers and toilets. For this edition four new artists joined the group: Jordy Walker, Onno Poiesz, Aletta de Jong, and Toine KlaassenRegina Kelaita, who in the previous edition had served to document the process, now participated as an artist in her own right.
