Social Aspects #9, Derde Wal Nijmegen
During ‘Social Aspects’ Verrijt considered the public space as his decor, where he created new scenes and environmental collages. A search for the tension between the ordinary and the unusual, the everyday and the deviant. A way of confronting the public space with unusual participants in the street. Projects in which he appropriated the public outdoor space as decor, where social interventions take place with his mobile installations and rituals.
Project made possible by: Gemeente Nijmegen, Provincie Gelderland, Stichting Stokroos, Mondriaan Fonds.
artist-in-residence AVL Mundo, July-August 2020
During the residency at AVL Mundo Verrijt worked on a series of installations, performances and made film scenes. New ‘scenes’ in which Verrijt creates his own archetypes.
AVL Mundo has been hosting an Artist-in-Residence Program since 2017. This summer I am one of the two artist that are invited to create at AVL Mundo. I create three-dimensional collages at various locations, the collages will come together in a new installation. Made possible by @mondriaanfonds
