the way we were - mariakapel hoorn - 1996

In 1996 artists' initiative Foundation The Achterstraat in Hoorn celebrated her 11th anniversary. Bart Drost was invited to lighten up this party with an active Visual attraction. There on the floor of the Chapel for Maria he formed a carpet of 250 images in color, the equivalent of these images in black and white he hung at the walls. During the festive meeting on 26 October 1996 he switched the images one by one. The present attendees were witnesses of the transformation black and with into color. The result was a new installation: a carpet of 250 black and white images on the floor and 250 identical motifs in color on the walls.
