Initial Banners

2002 - 2005 commission In 2002 the Christian College Henegouwen in the centre of Rotterdam celebrated its 100 th anniversary. For this occasion the school commissioned a work of art to be located on the facade of the building. Two groups of students were to participate in the process.
Thirty two students (15, 16 years old) designed in collaboration with the artists a stencil by useing their initials. These stencils are silkscreen printed into two monumental banners in a symmetrical way. The red-brown colour is based on the most present and the most authentic colours of the building.

Commission realised with E. Pikaar
