Between the 2nd of January and 30th of April artist Yasser Ballemans will have a residency at the Instituto Buena Bista on Curacao.
Together with students of the institute he is going to participate in the annual Curacao carnaval parade. Inside Out stands for the emergence of art in the carnaval parade of Curacao. We abandon the safe walls of the gallery and the museum and step from inside to outside. This theme will also be used in the works by the students. We are going out with a personal vision on the carnaval. We will play with the contrast between disappearing in the mob and the individual identity.
The project can be followed on this page and on a big screen in the Electron hangar at KOP in Breda where Willem Claassen in the project OP ZUNNE KOP works on his contribution to this parade.
This project is possible thanks to funds provided by Fonds BKVB (Mondiaan Fund since jan 2012).
