Installation by Koen Kloosterhuis

Thu 18.11.2021
Sat 18.12.2021
Location: maakleerplek

Young visual artist Koen Kloosterhuis was commissioned to develop an artistic installation on the Vaartkom, on display for a month in the rough, concrete silos. He was given carte blanche and encouraged to tackle the BANG! theme from his own vision and practice. Kloosterhuis will give us the chance to see origins, mystery, and evolution through the unique lens of his perspective. For two months, he’ll be hard at work at a Cas-co studio in Maakleerplek, which will also display the final piece to the public.
