Here we are painting in the spring of 2003 at Rufus.K’s place. You can see
the result (as part of the installation ‘Corporate Eye™’) at a groupshow called
‘RE04’ at the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam, during 10th,
11th and 12th September.

Here is a nice text about our upcoming thing at boijmans:

The Corporate Eye™

Museums are often vast and immaculate because of the arts number one
function: contemplation. Kind of easy, wouldn’t you agree? Contemplation
means ‘forget the rind and focus on the content’ (kind of like meditation).
The place art is exposed most often, besides museums and galleries, is the
business district. Employees of big companies, whether they like it or not,
are more often exposed to contemporary art than most museum curators.
Due to its contemplative character, employees are bound to work more
focussedly, and feel good about their daily surroundings. Plus there’s the
thing of the fiscal benefit. Yup, art’s one hell of a tax write-off.
If art (especialy that of the painted or photographed kind) is shown most
frequently in office buildings why don’t museums move their offices to the
exhibition space? There can be a lot of exhibitions in the former museum
offices, and this will create loads of free space for extra exhibitions.
