  • A SociAL: iNTerVenTION

    a social intervention

    Artists: Zoe Kreye and Catherine Grau
    Event: August 29, 2012

    HMK {HotelMariaKapel} opens August 29 with the driving performance, “How to walk
    together” of Catherine Grau (US) and Zoë Kreye (CAN). This tour through the area Grote
    Waal in Hoorn is the start off the art project A Social intervention. Earlier this year HMK
    invited ten artists from the Netherlands and abroad to investigate the social impact of art
    in public spaces of the district the Grote Waal.

    This unusual boat trip is the kickoff of a series of intervention in public space. During
    meetings both artists collect personal anecdotes of the inhabitants of the Grote Waal.
    They have come across undiscovered stories and talents. This forms the source for a
    journey full of magical adventures. The artists collaborate with the canoe association
    KC Flevo to implement the interventions in the canals of the Grote Waal and the Dwaal-
    park.

    Today, on Wednesday, August 29th at 7 PM the narrative parade will start from the canoe
    club and follows the route along bridges and wharfs. Visitors are invited to join either by
    their boats or on foot, to encounter the creativity of the artists and the residents of the
    neighborhood.

    Join the procession? Walk or bring your boat along! For more information and directions
