subUrbAn SurpriSE


With: Karl Philips (BE), Sil Krol (NL), Mariela Limerutti (AR) and Wouter Sibum (NL).
June and July, 2013, final event on Sunday 30th of June.

During the months June and July, four artists worked in the public space of Enkhuizen, a town near Hoorn. This pop-up project, that goes by the title Suburban Surprise, takes place in the public space of neighbourhood ‘Plan Noord’. Inhabitants will encounter works in the public domain, unrequested and unexpected. Who these artists are? Karl Philips (BE), Sil Krol (NL), Mariela Limerutti (AR) and Wouter Sibum (NL). What they’ll do? We’re going to leave most of it a surprise, but like to tell you a bit more about Mariela Limerutti’s project: she’ll be importing exotic plants from the Argentinian garden of her deceased mother. Limerutti looked for Enkhuizen residents to adopt these foreign species. Her project, and those by the other artists was shown during our public event the afternoon of Sunday June 30.
