Starting at the beginning of the river and ending where the IJssel flows into the delta.
People were holding the river in their hands and looked at it for 10 minutes in silence.
‘We carry IJsselwater in glass spheres.
An atom of water, a drop of water,
a bowl of water, a river full of water.
We stand silent with IJsselwater ‘.
Concept, realisation & photography by Rob Sweere and Ellen Boersma
Organisation: De IJsselbiënnale – Kunstenlab Deventer and the five location contact-people, Rob Groot-Zevert, Joost Wolters, Mieke Conijn, Erica van Swaay, Peter Schräder, thanks!
The performance started with pouring the river water into the glass spheres.

After standing in silence the water was given back to the big river.
