Marjan Verkerk, wooden frame by Han Buhrs
Project for ‘Nijambo- Energy for the future’ , mondo mio! Children’s Museum Dortmund, Germany
Your future Island:
What should it look like?
What is important?
What if you lived there only with other children?
What if those children could decide everything for themselves?
Children made drawings in the museum and put them in the mailboxes of the evolving artwork. They wrote texts as well, or their parents interviewed them about the meaning of their drawings.
Marjan Verkerk worked on the spot and developed the image on the wall by assembling the drawings and texts and added to the image with coloured pencils and pastels. Han Buhrs added bit-by-bit parts to the frame using recycled and collected wood.
