Artist Jolande van Lith has worked on a contemporary research project
about 'Vincent's audience''.
Fascinated by his work and life, she started to investigate who these enthusiasts are now.
van Gogh' acquaintances and unknown Dutch people were questioned and the result
has used Jolande for a deepening in her own work and an exhibition based on the works.
In addition to home visits, the interviews took place at leading locations such asMuseum Bommel van Dam,
Noordbrabants Museum,Van GoghHuis, Vincentre and Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam.
In addition, (performance) evenings were organized in the Library 's-Hertogenbosch & Babel.
A digital database, a research report and an international award-winning exhibition have emerged from this.
2 collections of poems have also been published:
Twee blikken gele verf & eigen zinnen and Wat woorden voor Vincent van Gogh.
Available in regular bookstores & websites such as Bol.com
The project is on the longlist for the Brabant Heritage Prize.
