Ode to Breakfast

The exhibition of Vijversburg VI curated by Ankie Boomstra has the motto 'Short is the time, and irreversible'. As a tribute to the estate, follies and installations were commissioned to be exhibited throughout the property, one of which is 'Brinta 2008' designed by Studio Makkink and Bey. Through this collaboration, architect Rianne Makkink and designer Jurgen Bey constructed a watch house made of materials from the land on which the installation sits. The main material used is straw, a by-product from wheat which was grown on the property, which was packed into timber crates and stacked as building blocks. Spelled out in the meadow in front of installation is the name Brinta which is a popular breakfast cereal brand in The Netherlands. The project pays homage to the land as provider of our food and building materials.
