Artist in Residence April-May 2011: Fariborz Farid

Shaking hands in Jaarbeursplein. 2010. Public intervention.

We are happy welcome artist Fariborz Farid who will be the resident artist during April and May at Kinderdijk Project space.

During his residence period Fariborz will execute a series of interventions around the windmills and neighborhoods of Nieuw-Lekkerland related to the agricultural based culture in the area that nowadays it is gradually shrinking. These interventions will set the ground for the documentary piece (docufiction, as he refers to it) he intends to produce while being in residence. He will explore the very basic elements involved in the everyday public communication by reducing film sequences to a detailed close up of a certain fact.

  1. I love this idea, a wonderful way to introduce artists in the community and also align them with the community. Making a film about it is a wonderful idea. I have a feeling this will all be very positive.

    • Thanks very much Linda. I just got to check the comments. There would be a show on the 28th at Kinderdijk Project space from 16:00 to 19:00

      Best: Fariborz Farid
