My Latest Work
Maarten Baas’ project ‘My latest work’ was the first project from the new artist in residence program at the Beehive located in the de Bijenkorf in Amsterdam.
“Time is a common theme in my work and I often play with the limits of design, art and theater. In ‘My Latest Work,’ I give myself the impossible task of drawing the clock on the Beurs van Berlage minute by minute, my view from the Room On The Roof studio. Each time I finish a one-minute drawing, it’s overtaken by the new time indicated by the clock. In the store window, you can see a live performance by someone who constantly frames and hangs my latest work to only destroy it a minute later. In the window hangs my drawing of a clock that is equal to the current time.”
