KONTAKT

FRYSKE AKADEMY | DOELESTRAAT 8
Contact restrictions, up to and including a genuine ban on contact, were among the most important measures at the beginning of the Corona crisis. These regulations also most noticeably changed social and societal conditions. Using the example of projected words in West Frisian and Dutch on architecture and its visitors, the work in the inner courtyard of the Fryske Academy in Leeuwarden deals with the perception-altering significance of contact.

Light, space, architecture, nature, human, and language come into contact with each other, in form and content, and change themselves and their surroundings.

KONTAKT was developed specifically for this place, both in form and content. What makes it special is the collaboration of the light and projection artists Detlef Hartung and Georg Trenz with the Frisian author and architect Grytsje Schaaf, who developed the word material for KONTAKT.

The work was produced in cooperation with Leeuwarden, Unesco City of Literature.
