The Sorry- Scriptorium is a writing desk with integrated salt clock.
It forms the stage / working environment and display for the Sorry / (Bible).

The Sorry / (Bible) is a long-term performative work in progress and artist book where
all letters in the holy bible are erased with white correction fluid, except for the
S, O, R, R, and Y in that order.
The piece will be finished when the last page (of 1104) is whitened out.

The Sorry / (Bible) and Sorry- Scriptorium are part of an ongoing series of “sorry-pieces”
in various media by Willum Geerts.

At the opening and during the the exhibition Willum Geerts performed in the scriptorium on a regular basis.

Project Space Zoete-Broodjesis a platform for contemporary art that provides solo presentations of artists with an experimental approach to the space.
In the series My Fiends the artist is given the opportunity to work two weeks prior to the exhibition.
