Teddy bears, 2008 & .
The teddy bear: thè ultimate stuffed animal from our childhood days. An object without a will upon wich we project all our love and hate, dreams and fears. For a while. Then we grow up and dump Teddy: used up and no longer wanted. How would the bears look when all that they have absorbed in that time would be visible?
Teddybears, big and small, made from second hand blankets. Variations on the traditional pattern of the original Teddy bear. I made the small ones for the exhibition ‘Terugblik in kindertijd’ at Ververs and the big ones for the performance of the ‘Foolish People’ called ‘Terra Extremitas’ at the docks in Amsterdam.
