It started in 2012 under the title 'Made in China', with a video created as a monumental intervention for a public screen of the Chinese European Art Center in Xiamen, China. Then it got integrated into an installation in the public space of 's Hertogenbosch (NL) that same year. This inspired to more installations and objects and after en invitation by the CEAC the project went further under the name '40 Titles', after a special project carried out during the artist residency that took place in 2014, resulting in 40 artist books with 40 titles, given by people met during the stay in Xiamen.
The presentation in the gallery of the CEAC was a total installation was a residue of the stay, build up out of several elements: Like for instance food packages, the box of the new stove that got installed in the studio appartment, pruning waste from the coconut trees standing in the main raod alongside the beach of the peninsula, garbage that the tide brought in and dropped on the tropical beach daily. But als furniture from the appartment, together with (digitally generated) video works and photographic works, as a result of long hikes through the 3 million people city and it's great amount of parks where people meet up. The main structure was created out of chinese clothes lines that I used for site specific public interventions. It's struture mimics the way temples are build up, taken the local city architecture in consideration, in which everything may coincide and is extendable for collective or individual needs. The exhibition adopted the way city gardening is implemented: sometimes recognizable and well structured, other times unrecognizable united in a seemingly unstructered environment. Doing so, even the office of the gallery and the equipment used became part of it. The construction was all about similarity and (ostensible) balance.
