Greylight Projects is the platform for art and culture in Heerlen. Several times a year, the organisation invites artists from the region and beyond to come and live and work in Heerlen for a period of time. The programme put on by Greylight Projects both explores and responds to things which are going on in Heerlen and the region. They do this using the online tool #mappingheerlen, which not only enables artists to capture places which are in some way unusual and/or arouse the imagination, but also pinpoints locations where artistic projects in the city and the region are on display.

There are currently three guest artists working in studios located in former school premises on Schaesbergerweg in Heerlen: Darcy Neven from Valkenburg; Luca Soudant from Maastricht; and Claude Horstmann from Stuttgart (D).

Keith Haring

The Talk & Walk all have some connection with the current exhibition taking place at SCHUNCK - Keith Haring: Grace House Mural. Haring’s modus operandi of working in public spaces or responding to his surroundings ties in well with the vision of Greylight Projects and #mappingheerlen. As an extension, an exploration of current attitudes to the city and the region are made.

Darcy Neven

 The first Talk & Walk session is with Darcy Neven (1991), who is a visual artist, writer, gardener and spokesperson on matters of art and ecology. Neven has previously displayed her work in SCHUNCK at the ‘Landscape Works with Piet Oudolf and LOLA: in search of Sharawadgi’ exhibition. Following this event, her greenhouse went on tour and has ended up in the Greylight Projects garden. Here, she presents her greenhouse and the progress she is making and gets to work on her garden to develop it further and grow vegetables.

As part of her residence and work on the garden, Darcy aims to immerse her audience in her experiences and way of thinking. At the same time she invites us to talk about her garden over a cup of tea. As Neven herself says, “My idea is to have a nice cup of tea together so that we can share experiences. A cup of tea is a natural way of slowing life down. As we slow down, the call of Mother Nature takes over. I’m more than happy to talk about my story, about my calling and about how the mobile greenhouse is a manifestation of this. A manifestation of how important gardening is and the cultivation of one’s own food. To show that gardening is not a hobby, nor a trend, but a declaration of freedom and revolution.”
