Today we started riding in direction of Supermarket, crossing the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and stopped for one night in Malmö at Skanes Kunstförening!
Happily we didn’t get any problems (toi toi toi), but could enjoy big sausages in Germany, the first snow and a lot of cars and landscape.
Tijs Bakker from DZR and Eric Roelen are currently constructing the ‘Kodak-Moment’.
Countless tests take place on the Van Der Takstraat to get the stand picture perfect. On monday morning the stand and the souvenirs leave for Stockholm. But right now we continue to roll up our backgrounds.
WIND IT UP!

The goal of SUPERMARKET, the international artist-run art fair, is to provide a showcase for artist initiatives from all over the world and to create opportunities for new networks in the Swedish as well as the international art scene.
De Zwarte Ruyter was invited to be a part of this renowned art fair, so we planned a small Rotterdam invasion, for the staff and the artists will travel by plane and by car to get to Stockholm.
For SUPERMARKET 2011 we will build up De Zwarte Ruyter – Souvenir Shop. Here you will find an unlimited edition of all kinds of souvenirs.
In our DZR Souvenir Shop we will have a so called ‘kodak moment’ with a collection of different drop backgrounds. You can choose one of those backgrounds and we will take a picture of you while standing in front of it.
The backgrounds are made by and will represent the artists we worked with so far in a more serious and ironic way.

At the moment Eric Roelen is working hard on ‘Dipped in Rotterdam’, the DZR souvenir stand which he designed especially for Supermarket. It consists of green dipped wooden sticks, which refer to the Rotterdam flag, that are used in a simple but ingenious construction. The batons are formal doped/ baptized in Rotterdam.
