SASKIA DE BRAUW & VINCENT VAN DE WIJNGAARD - GHOST'S DON'T WALK IN STRAIGHT LINESBowery and Grand Street, 2018 © Saskia de Brauw & Vincent van de Wijngaard

Foam presents the project Ghosts Don’t Walk in Straight Lines by Saskia de Brauw and Vincent van de Wijngaard. For this project de Brauw, mostly known for her international career as a top model, crossed the streets of New York by foot, walking from North to South in one full day. This slow walk along Manhattan – juxtaposing a city that is in many ways very fast moving – was documented along with stories and encounters from 225th Street and Broadway all the way down to Battery Park. The walk took Saskia on a journey through Manhattan, crossing many different neighborhoods, sparking observations, thoughts and memories.

This multifaceted project consists of an exhibition designed by Mark Schuijt, a short film edited by Will Town featuring music by Jim Beard and costume design by Haider Ackermann, as well as an accompanying book designed by Matt Watkins. The book and the film capture New York in a very specific moment in time, where traces of the past are still visible but on the brink of disappearing.

The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 31 January by designer Haider Ackermann, in the presence of the artists. You are welcome from 5.30 onwards.

The exhibition is on view until 10 February 2019.
