In the period February - March 2013 Frank Havermans (1967) worked as Artist in Residence at Cityscapes GM8. 

In the eyes of Frank Havermans the City is not the product of architects, urban designers or developers. The City of Frank Havermans is an independent being that forms and transforms itself in its own secret and complex way. Over the years Frank Havermans investigated the secrets and complexities of the city in a series of drawings and objects that form an ongoing project on the city.

This time his exercise departs from the empty Cityscapes Studio space with in it only three austere objects by Gerrit Rietveld (remnants of the last Cityscapes Exhibition): a steel table, a glass show-case and a wooden chair. Step by step Frank will conquer this space and fill it with his dreams and drawings on the secret life of the city. The result of the Residency of Frank Havermans in GM8 will be presented on Friday 22 March.
