A lecture by Willem Oorebeek, and a presentation of his SIR-edition The Individual Parallel – Bilderberg Utopia (2015).
In 2014, Dutch artist Willem Oorebeek completed The Individual Parallel – Bilderberg Utopia, an art work on the facade of the Bilderberg Parkhotel. Consisting of 604 white composite dots, the work has become a landmark, visible from the junction of Westersingel and Rochussenstraat. The work has been included in SIR’s sculpture collection.
This month, SIR is publishing a special edition by Willem Oorebeek: a video, which he based on the 604 dots, and 604 possible interpretations of the work. The video has been released as an edition of 25, available through SIR. In a new edition of SIR’s lecture series the Z-Files (where the Z comes from Zadkine), Willem Oorebeek further expands on The Individual Parallel – Bilderberg Utopia, addressing his position as an artist in public space. Bilderberg Parkhotel director Erik de Wit will be receiving the first edition.
