THE CHALLENGE

I travel by train to the Suntower in Osterode am Harz. In my Luggage I can only carry 1 supermarket packaging. The challenge: build an art installation on site using minimum material and tools.

CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

Question: which supermarket packaging is appropriate for the Suntower?

On forehand I did some research and found out that a defense tower in a old city wall, closed outside the city and open on the inside, like the Suntower, is known in architecture as a shell tower.

Shell – pasta – squire!

On the pictures the first meeting of the squire, his beautiful name is – eta gir e pip -, with the Suntower in Osterode am Harz.

Pictures: the Suntower is part of the old mediëval city wall. seen from outside the city it is a closed defense tower and inside the city it is a welcome half-timbered house.

In the last weeks of the school year 2016/ 2017, a small group of pupils on the primary school “De Klink” in Grathem, a small town in the south of the Netherlands, were having a great time together by building this art installation “The kitchenFUNpalace!”

I developed and supervised this workshop by myself.

As an artist, i was participating in a children’s art project organized by the Art and Culture Foundation of the manicipality of Leudal (NL). The project will be concluded with a two-day exhibition. The artists and children will receive and guide you with pride.
