The Greenhouse - 1.1 Tempeh, 2021
The Greenhouse is a double triptych showcasing the construction of a new terrain. The components and essence of this pursuit lie on not just merging keen eyes and competent skills but also one's inexhaustible open mind. This approach flaunts with the notion of playful patterns, multiplied dimensions and the compulsory wit, resulting in refreshing examples of eccentric spacial visuals that speak more than it is revealing. Ultimately a highly satisfying endeavour, this series is a collaboration with the versatile artist Pim Top, and a result of both of our evolving visions.
As usual, this project spearheads the principle of supporting local entrepreneurs to advocate sustainability as much as possible. The location, Stadskwekerij De Kas, is a self-sustained community greenhouse in Blijdorp ran by a small team of dedicated green thinkers.
Finally, thanks to the Rotterdam based artists and designers who unconditionally supply their creation to make this project possible. They are, Mieke Cuppen, Floriane Dulurieb, Laura Luchtman|KUKKA and Laura Schurink. Other accompanying stunners are from Raket & Distels and NICHE flowershop.
