During Boring festival, I made multiple flower sculptures that form the installation ‘Laatbloeiers’. With this work, I want to show that beauty can blossom in the most filthy places.
My work got stolen, vandalized, and pied on during the two day festival... Still, I am thrilled with how this weekend went. The responses to my work show how important it is to discuss public space, and question those who claim it.
At the festival's heart: De Vishal, and across Haarlem city, the flowers are to be discovered in public urinals. This work raises awareness about how the public space is still primarily designed for able-bodied males.
