Kunstvlaai 2014

1646 reacts on work by Wim Poppinga

where:

Amstelpark, Amsterdam

From 21 to 25 May 1646 will be present at Kunstvlaai 2014, located at the Amstelpark, Amsterdam.

1646’ contribution to Kunstvlaai is a temporary intervention to an already existing art work in the Amstelpark in the form of a billboard, the work of Wim Poppinga ‘Big Talk’ (2008) situated at the Bastion entrance. To bring visibility to this specific area of the Park, Poppinga made use of a humourous comment on the billboard format and its advertising speech qualities.

In 2014, 1646 brings a continuation to this comment. Using the context of the Amstelpark as the once glorious location for events like Floriade and today Kunstvlaai, the work adopts a layer of abandonment and decay that comments on political short-term decisions, cultural policies and its time specific interests that often omit investing in cultural infrastructure and sustainability.
