A conference of Stones
Date, June 29 2017
Time 7-11 PM
“These stones then, just a number of inches tall, and this tray roughly a foot across, they are nothing short of a mountainous island rising from the sea! Jade-green peaks penetrate the clouds and are encircled by them. A blue-green barrier, immersed in water, is standing straight up. There are caves as if carved in the cliff sides to hide saints and immortals. Jetties and spits flat enough and long enough for fishermen. The paths and roads are narrow and confined, yet woodcutters can pass along them. There are lagoons deep and dark enough to hide dragons.” – Kokan Shiren Saihokushu
A Conference of Stones invites guests to give a voice to the many stories embedded within stones. We’re all born from stone and to stone we will return, but not yet. First we tell eachother a story. The circle will include Serdar Ahmad, Maria van Daalen, Lee Ellickson, Arne Hendriks, Monique van Hinte and Ronald van Tienhoven.
De expositie en Stone Conference zijn mede mogelijk gemaakt door het Amsterdamse Fonds voor de Kunst (AFK) en Prins Bernhard Fonds.
