VHDG/SRV – Edition 2014
Artist: Teun Vonk
Curator: Lennard Dost

VHDG/SRV is a project initiated by art initiative VHDG in 2013, when I was still curator at VHDG. As I found it a pity that VHDG didn’t have the opportunity to create a residency, I came up with the idea for a mobile residency. In the end VHDG converted an old mobile grocery store into a mobile studio. Starting in 2014, each year a young artist got the opportunity to create new work, based on a trip of a month that he or she made with this mobile studio through the province of Friesland. Artist Teun Vonk, whom I selected, was the first artist to make use of this mobile studio. Vonk departed on the 30th of August 2014, for a journey of a month. The results were being presented at De Blokhuispoort (Leeuwarden, The Netherlands) from 27th September – 11th October 2014.

VHDG/SRV was supported by Gemeente Leeuwarden, Provincie fryslan, Leeuwarder Ondernemers Fonds, Stichting Doen, Leeuwarden 2018 and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.


Omroep Fryslan did a tv report on the project.

And Leeuwarder Courant wrote two articles about the project.
