Broedjurk (in cooperation with Atten van der Vlugt)

The idea for the ‘Broedjurk’ arose because of the chicken disease that struck Holland at the time.

The broedjurk is large and made of rags, The space under the skirt represents another world, sheltered from society. The cup implants with the enormous amount of eggs stand for the huge exploitation by the bio-industry on one side and the fragility of nature on the other.

The Broedjurk reflects a contrast between artists’ freedom, creativity, space and time as the highest aim. Yet for the bio-industry a maximum profit in a minimum of time and space is what counts.

Art installation comes to life in association with public.
