Summary note:
The work of Dutch artist Bart Lodewijks takes him out of the studio and into the city, its streets and neighbourhoods. His enigmatic yet beautiful repetitions of straight chalk lines, drawn using a spirit level on walls, buildings, stairways, and sidewalks, are a fleeting testament to the challenges and interactions the artist experiences during his working process. In 2010 and 2013, Lodewijks spent some months in Rio de Janeiro, searching for suitable locations for his drawings. Local residents led him to places that were scenes of everyday life, mundane yet with a special character. Much of the time he frequented a small favela, about which he has written a story relating the life he discovered there.
