09.08 - 21.09.2014, De Vishal, Haarlem
wallpainting / 518 x 270 cm / wallpaint + coloured vinyl foil
For this mural, I chose the words ‘HET LAM’, Dutch for ‘the lamb’. It’s a reference to the cathedral Sint Baafs in Ghent, where the altar piece by the Van Eyck brothers is housed (1432) which I greatly admire. The location of the Vishal is built against the St. Bavo in Haarlem, a reason why a connection to Ghent seemed inevitable to me.
The wallpainting is part of the exhibition KLAAR! with Sanne Bruggink, Kuno Grommers, Gracia Khouw, Robert Jan Leegte, Johan van Oord, Jan van der Ploeg Piet Tuytel, Fabian Westphal, Marije Vermeulen, curated by Tonneke Sengers and Frans Vendel
