Artists Derek Tyman and Andy Webster (both UK) are interested in the potentials for music, certain key recordings and related structures to act as platforms to recall the past, address the present and imaginatively speculate about the future and in so doing, perhaps suggest alternative ways of thinking and living.
In July 1985, independent-minded environmentalist Vanda Chan set off in Arcadia, her home-made houseboat, to sail the short distance from Pulawat towards Pulpap Atolls in Micronesia. A storm caused her to change course and the houseboat hit rocks close to an uninhabited island. Chan believed she would be found quickly, but her solitude would last – it would be over 8 months before she was rescued.
To coincide with the exhibition at Fred & Ferry, Tyman and Webster are collaborating with Radio Centraal in Antwerp.
