The Magnetic North

Under the name The Magnetic North artists Zijlmans and Jongenelis develop visual action regarding socially relevant topics, which they perform together with the residents of Amsterdam North on several locations. From August 27 untill October 5,  records of these performances and disruptive actions can be seen during an exhibition at Nieuw Dakota.

Lead by artists Sylvie Zijlmans and Hewald Jongenelis, the residents of De Bongerd and the Leeuwarderweg did two performances last week. De Bongerd was visited by a masked figure dressed in black named ‘The Stoker’, who brought with him a mobile fire that ignited the residents into vibration.
