On December 5th, 2017, Frans van Lent and ieke Trinks walked the same route through the streets of Nicosia, Cyprus, in opposite directions, passing one another repeatedly at different points.
They started walking at 11:15 a.m. and ended at 1 p.m.
The route was near the check point on the occupied side of the old city center. The route was determined ahead of time and consisted of winding streets that form in a loop and took approx. 11 minutes to walk.
Every time Frans and ieke met they each marked the spot on the pavement with chalk to indicate the time and place.
They met for 21 times.
Meeting 5 – traces was performed for the second time during the Urban Emptiness Festival in Nicosia, Cyprus, 2017.
Meetings is a collaboration between ieke Trinks and Bernard Roddy.
