At the age of 35 Jean Bordes (1950) got in a terrible accident in the Pyrenees mountains of Lourdes, France. Ironically the same mountains where he needed spending time on his own during his life, as a person, as a painter. A very long recovery follows and this accident changes a lot. March 2017 I’ve met Jean Bordes and I will start filming a documentary portrait about him May/June 2018.
Since the beginning of this year (2018) I’ve started together with community artist Juul Langenberg a project about my neighbourhood ‘Slotjes Oost’ in Oosterhout (The Netherlands). We are now collecting images and stories for this Community Art Project.
