VHDG/SRV
Curator: Lennard Dost

VHDG/SRV is a project initiated by art initiative VHDG in 2013, when I was still curator at VHDG. As I found it a pity that VHDG didn’t have a residency, I came up with the idea for a mobile residency. So, VHDG converted an old mobile grocery store into a mobile studio. Starting in 2014, every year a young artist gets the opportunity to create new work, based on a trip of a month through the province of Friesland with this mobile studio. Artist Teun Vonk, whom was selected by me, was the first artist to make use of this mobile studio. He left Leeuwarden on the 30th of August 2014, for a journey of a month. The results were being presented at De Blokhuispoort (Leeuwarden, The Netherlands) from 27th September – 11th October 2014.
