November 1 at 16.00 o’clock is the opening of the exhibition in the Breestraat 63-75. Nearly 50 people contributed a little box with an assemblage. They got the boxes from Henk Hannemann who works with them for the last year.
Electric Baby felt lonesome and needed a sister. So Henk made one: Electric Baby 2. 20x40cm.
Assemblage in an old wooden box from a fifties carpenter working place. With a wooden puzzle, picture from Living Birds of the World, second printing 1965, Talens paint bottles, wooden toys etc. 20x40cm.
Pieces of an old door, driftwood, wood near studio, postcard, horse shoe, bottle of homeopathic fluid etc. 20x40cm.
Assemblage. 40x40cm. Couldn’t find a name for this assemblage so I took a title of a Flaming Lips song and changed it a bit. Pieces found in The Hague, Leiden, Zoetermeer, Rotterdam and Noordwijk.
Made on October 6 of the year 2014 in my studio in Leidschendam between hometown Leiden and The Hague. 20x40cm. I used branches from a fallen tree near my studio.
When Henk is in the Breestraat in Leiden, he works on his collages. This one is bigger than usual: passe-partout 40x50cm and inner part 29x44cm.
