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.

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.

The work got stolen, vandalized, and pied on during the two day festival… The responses to the installation, show how important it is to discuss public space, and question those who claim it.
