On Tuesday evening, July 23, 2019, Bart Drost gave in Hall 1 of Hubert-Nijmegen an overview of his artist's life through six works and one performance, an intensive search for the sources of homesickness and longing.
A photograph of the young artist - taken on silly children's day 1961 - is prominent in Hall 1, as if the boy were guest of honor.
He then gave a try-out of his 'in paradiso' by transforming 'version 1' into 'version 2'. A fence around 22 embroidered jumpsuits is moved and the same jumpsuits hang freely in space.
