Art in corona times 26. Wouter van der Giessen, Kraam (Market Stall); The Balcony, The Hague

Wouter van der Giessen, who has just graduated from the art academy in Breda, is fascinated by colourful plastic furniture and their sculptural qualities.

Presently, at shop window gallery The Balcony, he has installed seven uniform objects.

They look like children’s seats or plastic seats from a swing or another playing object.

The title may suggest a colourful string of flags marking a market stall.

However, they might as well suggest nothing in particular, except for a row of identical objects in four different cheerful colours in a shop window.

Which, in itself, is enough to bring a striking surprise in between the different shop windows in this particular street.
