Opening times: 15:00 - 18:00
Part of the atelierWG Series
At puntWG, you can see my first explorations of an alternative paradise and I would love to talk to you about it.
For 2500 years, earthly paradise was defined and shaped by prophets, kings, painters, explorers and politicians. What they painted for us is a delightful picture of an isolated, walled haven where you lack nothing: for centuries a dream image that is as stable as it is unattainable.
But does that image still suffice as an ideal desired world? Does it still match the perception and desires of people in our current era? Or is an alternative, contemporary representation of the earthly paradise conceivable? A form that yields something essentially different from what a miracle garden, a tropical beach or other 'pamper resort' has to offer us? And what could such a paradise look like?
I will occupy myself with these questions in the coming years and I will report visually on this Project Paradise. Not with the illusion of being able to deliver the final image. But making an effort to visualize and present a 'workable' version of paradise as comfort and inspiration for possible places of escape.

As part of my Project Paradise, I have conversations with diverse people about their image of paradise, based on a set number of questions.
