Open Air

Special section for presenting large-scale works of art on the grounds of the Van Nelle Factory

Which work from the Open Air Section should visitor absolutely see? Lekkerkerk: “I have grown interested in the work of Yair Callender, who has constructed a monumental stage for the setting sun–a project that is cinematic, poetic and sculptural in nature, bringing an ode to the heroic conditions of the universe.”

“I have been looking for sculptural and performative interventions and large-scale works that do not mimic the industrial aesthetic of the Van Nelle Factory, but rather add an unexpected poetic dimension and open up a new percep- tual realm.”
Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, curator Open Air
