ENCAPSULATED STORIES

“Void, Turning Point, Element”
Khurtova / Bourlanges / Rebetez
2011
Residence / Exhibition at Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn, NL {HMK}

Encapsulated Stories is a project by three artists, coming from different backgrounds and fascinations. In HMK, they join their interests in a project dealing with the physical and fictional history of architecture, and of HMK’s architecture in particular. Before HMK’s guesthouse was an orphanage, it also functioned as a monastery. The adjacent Maria Chapel also functioned as a Catholic Church, ammunition storage and a Protestant Church.
In executing their physical research on HMK, Bourlanges, Khurtova and Rebetez are dedicated as a ‘forensic team on a crime scene’, searching for tactile traces of stories of HMK’s previous users and residents.
