Summer exposition

Went yesterday to the summer exposition in the municipal museum in the hague.
For the second time amateurs and pro's can send in one piece of artwork with as theme love.
From the more of 10.000 participants in three big rounds just 502 passed for this exposition.
The visitors may vote for what they think is the best work. I gave my vote to a nephew who has made it into the building.

Here an example of an artwork send in by Charlie Jones. A sinking ship in a school bench.
What has it to do with love. A school bench that bind two individual persons inexorably is the ultimate nightmare so said the artist.

3 opmerkingen:

  1. Visiting an exposition is fun. But sometimes too difficult to understand.

  2. I'm not sure I LIKE the shipwreck, but it surely gets my attention and makes me wonder about it, especially with the artist's comment about it.

  3. I can see how being seated next to someone you have a crush on could be a mixed blessing, but I'm not sure about the ship - Photographically I like that first picture, really captures the feel of a museum space :-)
