About Foundation By The Way

Foundation By The Way was founded in 1995 and consists of a group of
artists (Roy Cerpac, Elspeth Diederix, Sander Haccou and Jeroen Kooijmans).
They initiate projects, individually or together, and depending on the
nature of the project, they involve other artists. The projects of By the
way take place at different locations and mostly abroad. The projects
involve a working period and a presentation and usually it brings artists
together from different disciplines. All the projects include travelling,
not necessarily far, but the location will always be "new" for the
participating artists.

A working period and presentation on the parking lot of the Hilton Hotel,
with the car as a starting point for an exhibition.

A/C DE LUXE / 1997
A project of Elspeth Diederix and Jeroen Kooijmans i.c.w. three Dutch
artists of the ICCD (International Centre for Cultural Development) in
Trivandrum India. The artist worked for a month. They started this working
-period with an exhibition of 24 hours in the Mascott Hotel. The final
outcome was a publication, a poster/catalogue.

The project took place in 'Under Dubbelsbro', Copenhagen. An industrial
building between rail roads and highways close to the centre of Copenhagen.
This building and the city itself inspired the artists for their work,
which in the end resulted in an exhibition. A catalogue was made at the end
of this project.

A group of artists made work, while travelling to the north of Norway.
Their work was presented in the Tromsĝ Art Society. They decided to make
new works and to experiment while travelling.This resulted in an intensive
working period with a lot of cooperation.

O SOLO MIO / 2000

1999. They documented their experiences of the eclipse , in foto's, video's
and sound. The presentation of these works took place on May 12th 2000 in
W139 in Amsterdam.
A catalogue was made at the end of this project.
