In Schiehal Hal C
Delft, Schieweg 15

Building moving sculptures,
along an endless road.
It are moving targets,
Delivered by plane loads.

Skulls wiggling on long poles,
Hip bones eaten bare,
Eyes flying over my head.
Lips forming over my ears.

Imprinting words in my wringled soul,
Weaving star shapes into my outer lobes.
Wax flakes melting in my hands,
Smearing them out over an expanding shoulder curve.

... . We want more.

Flora Theater



Big Bright Brains,
       Hot Long Legs.
She is walking 
        through the City*,
       And it aint the same.

And she is coming,
        and she is coming,
And she is coming,
        So closely by.

And she is coming,
        and she is coming,
She bends forwards
       and lifts her legs.

And she is coming,
        and she is coming,
She reaches out,
       stretches her shirt.

Rolling the pavement,
        As she goes.
Counting the clerkheads,
        As she goes.
... . We want more.

... . We want more.
... . We want more.
... . We want more juice all around.
We want more juice all around.

In your mouth, dripping of your lips.
In your ears, hanging on that rings.
At your arms, in your pits.
In the words slipping of your tongue.

... . We want more.

Street Theater: Berlin Lacht

Kreuzberg



On Stage: ArthurX@BerlinLacht.de

The street theater festival was going to start, so we were thinking: "Maybe we can put the paintings against one of those walls with grafitti."
So we walked into the office of the festival, that was downstairs of our room. We had heard and seen them sitting on the veranda before, having breakfest at Saturday morning at seven.

They pass away in the summer night, like a ripple of wind passes over the leaves in the trees. Gently dancing to oblivion.

Kunst Hall Delft

Exhibition@DNA
De Nieuwe Academie



Frank Koenen presents ArthurX@DNA

This is a large exhibition of the paintings and sculptures,
which gives them the space they require
in an underground like disused factory sphere.

It befits the raw and emotional style.
The expressive lines and colors contrast with the functional building.

What makes the exhibition especially attractive, is the widely varying and interacting crew of volunteers and visitors.

Paris at Night

Song with piano
Photo's of Paris
in 1987



Paris at Night

She walks away,
She goes away,
She set me out.

It makes no sense,
The words I say,
She goes her way.

It's Paris at night,
The light breaks apart,
The bulb that shines.

A window that opens,
A door that closes,
It's all shut down.

The march is over,
The battle is fought,
Every men has gone.

Early morning

Sunrise in the meadows and small canals,

Beginning of the summer.
Misty air rising out of the reeds.
Willows, poplars and birds,
Slowly awakening from their sleeps.
The summer is calling aloud:
Awake, Awake!
Life flows forth.
It's now.
Only now.

5 Sculptures by ArthurX

Sculptures in Bronze
Blues Brother Voodoo Queen.

Out of some wild ancient tribe of prehistoric times
and the only things left over are these sculptures;
that is what these bronzes are.

The time has gone by.
New civilisations have come and passed.
Still, no words, just bronzes.
