WEERT - GRID

Tell me who you are ...

​

Theo Derksen tells stories in image and sound. With the thought 'Show me your room I say who you are', he drew a grid over the map of Weert with the Martinus Church as zero point. 

​

At the intersections of this grid, sometimes a living room, sometimes in nature, he took photographs. It was not so much about the residents as about the places and places where they live. 

​

He always presented these photographs as a triptych, so he could also show something of the geographical and sociological context.
