Czechoslovakia (part 1)
In my hometown there was a big hall where they sold live stock once a week. They also used it for sports and concerts. Then a disease affecting live stock broke out. The market stopped and the last years of the Groenoordhallen there were big flea markets. That’s where I bought a few sheets of stamps from Czechoslovakia. I worked on it with stamps and blockprint. Just for fun.
Assemblage. 40x20x10cm. Title is Schakenbosch. “Schaken” means chess in Dutch and “bosch” is the old Dutch spelling for wood. Schakenbosch is the name for the ground where my studio (a former mental hospital) is situated.
Made in a fifties wooden box from a carpenter studio, inlay of scrapwood from De Zaanstreek, pieces of wood and old furniture and chess pieces.
