1646 Reacts On Work By Wim Poppinga

AMSTELPARK, AMSTERDAM

From 21 to 25 May, 1646 presented at Kunstvlaai 2014, located at Amstelpark, Amsterdam.

1646’ contribution to Kunstvlaai was a temporary intervention to an already existing artwork in Amstelpark in the form of a billboard, the work of Wim Poppinga ‘Big Talk’ (2008) situated at the Bastion entrance. To bring visibility to this specific area of the Park, Poppinga made use of a humorous comment on the billboard format and its advertising speech qualities.

In 2014, 1646 brought a continuation to this comment. Using the context of the Amstelpark as the once glorious location for events like Floriade and today Kunstvlaai, the work adopts a layer of abandonment and decay that comments on political short-term decisions, cultural policies and its time specific interests that often omit investing in cultural infrastructure and sustainability.
