My Latest Work

Year: 2015

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.”
