Ronald van der Meijs - If I should live in the past, I wouldn’t need a memory

We are crowdfunding the publication If I should live in the past, I wouldn't need a memory by Ronald van der Meijs. In more than 200 pages, this monograph shows more than 20 years of work from the impressive oeuvre of Ronald van der Meijs, in which natural processes, technological systems and sound come together in poetic works. These works are produced by van der Meijs with great attention and craftsmanship, usually for specific locations in indoor and outdoor spaces.

Ronald van der Meijs

Van der Meijs uses unpredictable and slow natural processes such as growth and the tides as part and subject of many of his works. The machine-like installations create a dialogue between nature and technology or nature versus culture. His works are metaphorical and conceptual adaptations of sound, space, time and material.
Through this campaign you can pre-order the book or order a special edition with a unique multiple or an original work by Ronald. Help us to realize this publication and order it now!

"A concrete block is hoisted up to eye-height. Underneath, a metal grid is placed in a clamp on the broken tiles. Silence for just a couple of seconds, then a soft click and the block comes tumbling down and crashes the grid. Art van Triest (1983, Kootwijkerbroek) curiously studies the injuries of his ‘victim’ from all sides before he decides whether it needs one more blow. This one obviously hasn’t had enough yet, and the concrete block rises to the ceiling once more. Hoist, crash, repeat. The shed- turned into workshop is full of victims of the concrete, bent in all possible ways. It is quite hard to bend a grid: the structure provides strength through cohesion. This rigidity is the exact quality of the grid: it is strong, clear and repetitive. It is something you can build on."
