Objects as a Looking Glass

Amsterdam, 2020

Every object its story. These objects and the 

conversations regarding them, all tell a story about the place they were found: the NDSM-Wharf. This is one of the places in Amsterdam that is undergoing gentrification. This work tells a story about the wharf not only as a location, but also about the many lives it has lived.


Together with people who where at the NDSM wharf for various reasons, I searched for objects that could represent the transition of the place. I later asked others how they think this object ended up on the site.


These objects and quotes, have come together in a work with lightboxes. During the display of this work, spectators can move the text over the objects to read.
