yesterday i went to an amazing place to visit the beautiful MaaKali, which turned into a truly inspiring experience. The place is called Villa Ockenburgh and it's an old hotel-slash-youth-hostel which is now run by StichtingZ. The main building houses several artist studios and projectspaces, surrounded by gardens and a park, proper estate style...
oh yeah and it's at the beach too ;)
Next to the villa there's this excellent building by Frank van Klingeren which totally reminded me of my old academy, AKI.
The building has been empty for several years now and for some reason got completely trashed by dutch ME idiots, who apparently needed some target practice, and it then got further vandalized by local youth...
(solid steel trying to blend in...)
Since i'm in for a small 'retraite', i might just hang out there for some weeks come summer to work on projects, aaaahhhh
