Compilation of my well organised studio in Schakenbosch near my hometown Leiden in The Netherlands. Schakenbosch used to be a mental hospital.
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.
