The project “To-Day,” combines historical research about a specific site and a physical form that contains this research, which the artist calls a “fictional character.”
“Each time the piece takes place, the character is shaped by this one-day history. It is important to mention that the date is decided by the situation and not by the artist. The date always coincides with the official opening of the exhibition, in this case the 20th of February. The documentation and visual material departs from newspapers, travel logs, birthdates, obituaries, holidays, observances and any other traces related to this particular date. ‘To-Day’ is an archive of events, with an arbitrary point in common. The piece will be completed after 365 editions.”
The newspaper was published and distributed on the occasion of the exhibition Just in Time at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2006.
