Not In My Backyard - Amlin Drawing Residency, 2015

 
 

   

From 18 - 22 May 2015 I worked on a wall drawing (Size: ) called 'Not In My Backyard' at the offices of Amlin, Amstelveen. A commission by Wonders on Work.

Employees were given a Backyard Sheet with details of a small selection of species that have disappeared from The Netherlands in the last 70 years. They were asked to indicate on the sheet how badly they wanted each species to return to The Netherlands. I used the results of these Backyard Sheets to decide what to put in the wall drawing.

Every day a new species and/or their prefered environment appeared in the drawing, which changed each day and was made within one working week.

Annemarie van den Bergh wrote (in Dutch) about the work on jegens & tevens: http://jegensentevens.nl/2015/06/verdwenen-natuur-in-de-backyard-van-de-kunst/
