‘Windows’, installation for the Amsterdam Light Festival, 2017
Each window is 425 x 200 x 10 cm/ steel with Led lighting.

The installation is an extension of the facade of the 17th century Mennonite Singel Church located just behind it. Like today religious freedom was under pressure in the 17th century. In the relatively liberal, Calvinist country of the Netherlands, people practising other religions (including the Mennonites) had to hold their services in ’shelter churches’ like the Singelchurch. Wth this installation, the modest Singelchurch was put in the forefront again, making religion part of public life in the city.
