Two ‘poems’ make up an abstract text that encourages the viewer to pause for thought. It’s up to the viewer to decide what the words mean to them. The big words “PICK UP BACK UP PUT UP”, refer to the goals of the Chassé Cultuurfonds (culture fund): to make culture possible and develop talent. The smallers words – tingle, excite, incite, arouse en tickle – describe the sensations and feelings we experience when we visit the theatre.
The brushstrokes aren’t perfectly black, but they’re meant to look that way. By ‘writing’ on the wall with brushes and ink, the brushstrokes interact with the surface. Which makes Guido’s writing movement a permanently visible part of the mural.
