  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.
