Netherlands-based wunder duo Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk are firm friends of 4,Â so we wereÂ pleased to hear that those who missed their exhibitions in MilanÂ will be ableÂ to check out their workÂ at the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands throughout June 2010.
The seven installations byÂ Kiki van Eijk entitled ‘Zuiderzee Sttings’ are based on the applied art collection of the Zuiderzee Museum. She has designed new objects referring to everyday customs and crafts. The furniture, the ceramics and fabrics have been manufactured by the most reputable Dutch firms using traditional methods.
‘The Poor Man’s Gold’ by Joost van Bleiswijk is a series of four chests based on the voyages of the Dutch East India Company. The chests refer to the battle of good and evil, prosperity and poverty, and to ‘robbing’ or being ‘robbed’.
