Reconstruction #2. May 31 – August 23, 2015

The contribution of the VU Hortus to the Floriade 1972 is reconstructed in the Orangerie. It consists of a collection of succulents, the majority of which is the original material as used in 1972. The somewhat static composition functions as a backdrop for a photo shoot with dogs during the Viervoeters Doggy Marathon 2015 in the Amstelpark. Portraying (owners with) dogs is a fixed element of this yearly event.

in collaboration with VU Hortus and Viervoeters Doggy Marathon
