Earlier this year, Dutch artist Nienke Lit sold most of what she owned and took up residence in a former prison. This simplification was part of a greater plan to streamline life in preparation for an upcoming road trip and art project – a three-month motorcycle jaunt through the American West and a grand collaboration of creative women – Days of Yonder.
Physically, the Days of Yonder encompasses a series of “Yonder Pieces” crafted by Nienke and her collaborators on the road, a short film, and a comprehensive “End of Yonder” exhibition incorporating all of DOY’s collaborative yield. In addition to the tangible features of the project, uniting and inspiring women to roll the dice and chase whatever it is they are after rests at the heart of the adventure.
We will be joining Nienke on the road in a couple months to document the trip for both an upcoming ROS issue and LiveFASTmag.com. In the meantime, have a browse through this pre-travelogue photo set from Renée Sara Joppe shot around Nienke's prison abode.
