Hanging At The Bar.
Volkshotel, Wibautstraat 150, Amsterdam.

In 2023 I was approached by the Volkshotel if I would be interested in making a sculpture for their canopy. The canopy lends itself perfectly to art. It protrudes more than 5 meters from the sleek fa├žade made up of horizontal lines of concrete and glass. The hotel is located in the former Volkskrant building (from 1965) on the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam. The Volkshotel has been around for 10 years now and is celebrating.

So the answer was "yes, please".

When I visit the Volkshotel, I am always overwhelmed by the social, relaxed atmosphere of this
creative hub. It is a place to connect, to work, to relax, to enjoy. This self-portrait that you see on the canopy had its origins in nature; In stones and rocks I saw faces and figures and this inspired me to draw these characters. I could already see myself relaxing at the bar on the top floor of the Volkshotel. The sculpture became a frozen moment, a sketch, a sculpture.
