Onomatopee van Helmond

Embedded prose from Helmond

Onomatopee 9

Onomatopee sent out writers to reside at local households for one weekend; as embedded journalist. Inspired by Guy Debord’s situationisme and psycho-geography, they will write to transform situations into stories.

Onomatopee was offered a residency within the temporary project-space/exhibition space Hermitage Helmond. The Hermitage is located in a former ABN-AMRO bank in the centre of Helmond. Esther Didden, project leader, invited several organisations and artist to fill a vault at this unique spot.

Onomatopee used the Hermitage as a base for negotiation with the city. We’ve send artist and writers into the city, to generate text, sounds and visuals.

Our major project at the Hermitage is called ‘Onomatopee van Helmond’, for which Onomatopee sends writers to reside at local households for one weekend. Inspired by Guy Debord’s situationisme and psycho-geography, they will write to transform situations into stories.

The visits at the households will be followed by a cameraman and will be broadcasted on Stads-TV Helmond. Every month a new première will be screened in the Hermitage, with red carpets for writers and guest-households.

After the visit, Onomatopee will present the story told in audio by the artist at the Hermitage. The project will finish with the presentation of a book containing all the stories.
