In 1985 Bart Drost discovered the little Church of Pressingen, the smallest village of Netherlands. Beautifully situated in the Ooypolder, near Nijmegen. The Church was just a times per year used by the scouting and further not used. Cold, chilly and neglected. But a golden spot, impregnated with a high 'soul'. It would be Drosts first exhibition which he entirely initiated at his own strength and responsibility. It would turn out to be also the first in a series: six years running Drost made an installation made specifically for this Church. There would follow more churches and chapels in his carreer. Over the years the Church of Persingen has become a popular exhibition Resort: now there is heating, it'snicely painted, a lot of possibilities. But the soul is gone.
Over the years, Bart Drost has realized art projects in various other chapels, churches and churches.
