Livestream 6pm - 6am CET

What does it mean to perceive an artwork – and the artist who made it – in different light?
Introducing one artist, one work at a time, this series of focused presentations unfolds throughout Summer 2020. Each is accessible by appointment in the daytime and via livestream outside gallery hours.
We begin with someone who belongs to Amsterdam in multiple ways, even as he is now based in Berlin. We ask if this artist would consider exhibiting one work from a series of conceptual flower arrangements he devised to be interpreted by local florists. After weeks of lockdown, we wish for such a sensual and symbolic experience to make better sense of the world. Willem de Rooij, decides on a bouquet from 2012 interpreted by Gerda’s Bloemen and Planten on 18 June.
