Het Huwelijk/The Marriage

One day event, documented on 35 mm diapositives


— In an attempt to interact with Russian artists for the occasion of Exchange, a show in public space in Moscow with 15 Dutch and 15 Russian artists, the artists proposal was to marry a Russian alcoholic and poet, as a celebration of international relations. A white lace wedding dress was bought cash in a dark passage under a big street, from a woman who had worn it previously herself. The wedding ring of the male half of the couple was exchanged for a bottle of Vermouth soon after the departure of the Dutch group.
