Sightless Seeing #5: Marble Hall, 2020
concept: Sarah van Lamsweerde
composition: Martijn Tellinga
performance: Leroy de Böck
model: Anastasija Pandilovska and Marjoca de Greef
Residue exhibition

The spread of a crack is halted by a hole is a presentation of the interrupted artistic process developed in the social, historical and physical space of the TIN-collection: the theatre collection of the Allard Pierson Collections in the IWO boekendepot. On the 15th of March, you would have been invited to enter our process. At 17:00 we would have opened our collective studio at M4gastatelier, from there, we intended to descend to the Marmeren Hal to perform a prelude of the performative tour: Sightless Seeing#5: Rehearsing the Archive.
Sarah van Lamsweerde, Leroy de Böck, curators Anastasija Pandilovska and Marjoca de Greef and conservation specialists Julia Hartendorp and Gonneke Janssen practiced and intimately worked together. Leroy counted his steps to find his way in the depot. Julia’s hand was his tool to touch the fragile objects in the collection. Anastasija and Marjoca produced a model of the depot, so Leroy could practice at home as well. The cooperation moved beyond the boundaries of professional expertise and knowledge and transformed our relationships. Working towards the opening of the exhibition, the spread of COVID-19 interrupted the process and steered our movements in different directions. The preparations, rehearsals, handiwork, deliberations and reflections are compressed and dehydrated. It is the residue of our process that is presented.

In the live exhibition, no external audience was allowed, just the passer-through and resident of Tetterode could conceive the presentation. The residue of The spread of a crack is halted by a hole showed that there would have been an exhibition.

The purifying salt in the exhibition cases of the Marmeren Hal is a remnant of an installation by Anastasija Pandilovska with which this process began in 2018 in Skopje.
