Van Gogh Mile sound installations
At several places along the Van Gogh Mile route, isolated audio works will create a new reality, as if Van Gogh were addressing his public ‘directly’, as a guide for the journey. Walkers can listen to passages from Van Gogh’s letters at different places along the route. Eventually all these fragments will come together in the courtyard of the Hermitage Amsterdam, where people can listen to them at their leisure, with the sound of bells ringing from Amsterdam’s church towers in the background. This sound world was also part of Van Gogh’s own walks around Amsterdam.
