Nathalie Duivenvoorden


Nathalie goes with the color pencil as a painter. Layer by layer from the stain in place of the line, concentrating on the light. They go looking for places where something might occur. For a moment it looks as if a stage is built, ready for a show starting. LINK Nathalie Duivenvoorden

How to destroy a work of art

Artwork could muster tonnes was shredded in shredder


An artwork of artist Willem Hussem also razed to the ground by the demolition of the old post office in Raalte. The meter-high aluminum object is fragmented into the shredder. But the yield in the metal trade is much lower than the estimated value of the art object. Which is possibly a ton. Thanks PostNL for the right information to the demolition crew! LINK NRC (in Dutch)
