From november 19 2010 till january 9 2011 the exhibition ''Perrongeluk'' took place, as an embedded but separated event in the Biennial Gelderland 2010. 28 photo's from Huisman's ''Fragmented City Series'' were attached on five railway stations between the cities Nijmegen and Ede as vinyl sticker posters to railway platfrom waiting areas.

The Dutch meaning of ''perrongeluk'' (not a true word) somehow matches ''by accident'' in English, but also ''train platform happiness'' comes near, which is not really an existing meaning or frase.

Curator Tiziana Nespoli came up with the idea to confront the travelling public with Huismans photographs as ''confusing urban statements''. A lot of the pictures Tiziana choose, but not all, contain words or frases of (Dutch) text, which play with literal and metaphorical meaning. They all have their own circle of association (scroll down for more).

Unfortunately, by the end of november 2010, most photos had already been removed from several stations by strangers that maybe felt the pictures were too much for a trainstation. We will never know what their motives were. In any case, their behaviour can be seen as an unexpected sence of interaction with art. Lets keep it to a typical act of ''train platform unhappiness''.
