Asked to react to one of the Van Abbe Museum's catalogued paintings, which de Appel curatorial students considered as 'Bourgois Leftovers, as they did not hold much art historical importance; I chose a still life painting by Bart Peizel. I acquired the books depicted in Bart Peizel's Still Life with Books (1933) and used them as a starting point to cross-examine the painter's biography. I re-created and projected a photograph of the painting with new additions including the original swimming certificate of Peizel’s wife, Thérèse Ansingh (aka sorella), one of her paintings, and Bart's attractive self-portrait, trying to portrait their failed relationship. Hans Ansingh, Peizel's wife's nephew, agreed to meet with me and provides a voiceover, describing Peizel's distain for modern art. Other stories emerge of the boxes of candy sorella sent to herself to make Bart jealous, a sunken boat full of paintings, and his destroyed paintings in imitation of his nemesis Mondriaan.
