Art projects

Three of the four Art projects are travelling through Africa and are described below.


1. Weather Report 1991 - 2003

Weather Report is a series of collaborative works of art. In each artwork five artists from the four winds are represented. During her journeys (see 'Travelreport') Rienke Enghardt cuts her travel-drawings into four pieces and divides those pieces among four artists. Using the piece as binding-factor, each artist works individually on the work of art, which arises when the four pieces are being put back together again. Rooted in a sense of limitation Rienke invites artists she meets on her travels to create together a more complete image of reality. By rallying forces and connecting different points of view, Weather Report likes to reach as close as possible a complete view of the world. Since the year 1991 young artists from Asia, Europe, America and Oceania have joined Weather Report. Africa will be the last continent to participate. In the years between the first and the last Weather Report well over hundred and fifty works of art by over a hundred artists will have come into being.

2. Cadavre Exquis 1995 - 2005

Cadavre Exquis is originated from a children's game which was lifted into an art form by the surrealists in the beginning of the 20th century. Since 1995 Rienke Enghardt has initiated annual 'Cadavre Exquis get togethers'. These artistic 'get togethers' meet the need of the human psyche to communicate and trigger its game-mentality. Through a specific drawing formula the goal is to create a broad and accessible image of today. Cadavre Exquis obtains a pseudo historical meaning when comparing the drawings of today's artists with those of the beginning of the 20th century.

3. Tigerpaws in the Fishglobe 2000-2005

Tigerpaws in the Fishglobe is an interactive art show performed in a tent of kites. It is an artistic adventure, guided by inspiration-sources originated from storytelling, philosophy and art, where children together with artists search for the tangent planes of freedom and safety. With the composition of the outcome, Tigerpaws in the Fishglobe wants to compose a hopeful prospect of this new millennium in which humans and art, culture and nature will come closer together. After its première in 2000, the show visits children all around the world. In cooperation with the organization Warchild the Tigerpaws in the Fishglobe artshow visits children in war-torn countries as well as artists.
