  • One year ago, the village of Beetsterzwaag in Frysia (NL) was thesetting for a residential art project at Kunsthuis SYB by LaurenceAëgerter and Ronald van Tienhoven.Departing from Claude Lévi-Strauss’ seminal publication TristesTropiques (Éditions Plon, 1955), the artists recreated the frenchanthropologist’s photographs of Indian tribes in Brazil.All 63 original photos in the book were reenacted with a groupof Beetsterzwaag residents.By means of this form of ‘counter exploration’ through spaceand time the artists emphasize the continuum of humanexpression and cultural exchange.
  • This project and the artist’s book have been made possible thanks to the generous support fromthe Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
