For some people
A chocolate fountain
Is the closest thing to heaven.
(Poems by Frank koolen, 2006)
In full gear!
The preparations for 'Hopes and Fears' are in full gear; voluminous sculptures are being produced; slowly the shape of the exhibition takes its form. Time seems to go ten times faster in peaceful Pärnu; like the fine-grained sand that swiftly slips through your fingers at 'Pärnu Laht'.
Artists are not known as people who strictly abide the principles of Cog's ladder; there is enough efficiency (thanks Rael!) though, and there's great spirit.
But what to expect on tomorrow at 20:00, you might wonder?
There's Anne Schiffer's huge inflatable cave, Frank Koolen's rum-punched faces & abstracts and Ivo van Werkhoven's reflective works. Also we have a Martijn Stellinga's 'Wishing Well' and Ola Vasiljeva's jeti-sized creature. Marcel van den Berg is working with all artists on an information-desk called 'Kofi's Corner'.
Please join us on Tuesday! And for those of you who can't be there: we keep you posted.
(To be continued).
2 sad 2 tell u
I'm 2 sad
You little green thing.
yet so strong
it's like I've always known you.
This is our 2. Marcel
This is my chair
his hands and eyes
This is our Marcel
our hands and eyes
told our new friend.
He didn't want a beer.
POEM FOR THE SMALL MEATBALLS
Hello, small meatballs.
TIny tiny but,
Fair is fair.
You are really small,
but you taste great.
It's a shame
You aren't with more.
You, the small meatballs
We tried smiling
At almost everything.
But it didn't melt
the Estonian ice.

What are you doing here?
And why are there so many of you?
And why aren't you looking at me?
Or giving me any hope...
just found this picture of a 1936 house which seems to neighbour our residence in Lõuna Street... notice the four people in front of the house, dressed in primary colors!!
see y' all soon
HEY PEOPLE! WHERE ARE YOU ALL?????
Several photo’s on the Artel website (of different exhibitions) show this garbage container, right in front of the gallery. Maybe we can check with Rael wether it belongs to the gallery or we can use it anyhow. I hereby propose to consider it a third venue or architectural form to start our collaboration piece in/with.
It might be enough just to discard the whitecube in it ;)

monday.. (see above) 21.20 pm
i'm really looking forward to going to estonia.. but being around these monstrous creatures really freaks me out!
they don't bite.. what can happen.. what's the worst thing that can happen?(i keep repeating these words over and over)
what disturbs me most is the idea of first encounter.. how do you introduce yourself to a freak? hi, how are you? nice to meet you. what a beautiful claw you have there..
i just don't dig it. can anyone help me out?
