For the occasion of BOUCK’s Festival, on 22nd of October, 1646 presented the work of the Hague artist Ramon Ottenhof, of who is written: “An artist who, no matter how art-savvy you might or might not be, you will be able to understand and connect with. As we all have loved once and succeeded in love or maybe got lost in a relationship, we have hurt too. We know how immense a lovesick feeling can be; both physically and psychologically. Ramon Ottenhof’s newest artwork, a collection of doll houses tells a perfectly romantic and striking story with christmas decorations, lights, toys and even carefully cut and re-shaped colorful sponges about this almost obsessive but devoted love memory of his.” (Giuliano Bolivar)
On 22nd of October the (in)famous Boekhorststraat came together in a celebratory first edition of BOUCK’s Festival. A variety of artists from The Hague were performing on the street and in the local shops of the Boekhorststraat such as the wallpaper shop Stahlecker Behang, carpet store N&M Tapijt en construction markt Bouwmarkt Modern, Café Koos and the paint store.
All visitors were invited for the closing of the festival in the beautiful building on the corner of the Grote Marktstraat and the Boekhorststraat (Grote Marktstraat 10) for the special final act of the day.
