Trail of Trashure 
American artist Mierle Laderman Ukules made the sanitation workers of NYC part of her maintenance art. Dutch artist Kirsten Heshusius collected litter for five hours along the water’s edge of a bay in Amsterdam and then threw it all back into the water. Our litter is not only refuse. It is also a sign of our times and says something about how we live. Each piece of litter has gone through many different hands. From the manufacturer to the transporter to the storage worker to the sales person and finally into the hands of the consumer. 
 
As an artist from the Netherlands, I have travelled to the States numerous times. And I have come to expect to be accused at Customs of wanting to stay in the country to find work. My status in the U.S. is officially that of a tourist. 
 
For Trail of Trashure I will sweep litter on the streets of Bridgeport neighborhood in Chicago. I will start at Halsted orange line station and from there go south to take 35th street to the west to end up in the basement of Zhou B’s art center. 
 
My route will be both a stroll for the pleasure of it and a walk in search of discarded treasures. I’m only a traveller and a visitor. I don’t work.
