Due to COVID-19 the exhibitions of the artists collective Popinnart planned for this year were cancelled. To keep on going Popinnart decided to produce 'The art collective Popinnart corona proof exhibition', a book containing recent work by the 25 participating artists, 168 pages, 3 spreads per artist. QR-codes for background information. And vouchers for discounts.
From Friday 13th until Sunday 15th the book can be purchased at an introductory discount at Popinnart's webshop. You can also order a copy through an e-mail at: info[at]jetnijkamp.nl. From Mon 16th onwards the book will be available at several bookstores (a.o. Martyrium and Minerva) at € 17,50.
Drawings & videos by Jet Nijkamp about the Amsterdam Vondelpark (named after the Dutch poet Vondel), in this video combined with poetry by Co Woudsma. The drawings in this video depict the Picasso sculpture which is a kind of a landmark in the park. Visitors of the park know this sculpture as 'the bird' or 'the fish' or 'the bull' or.... hence Jet Nijkamp made her own Picasso. The poem by Co Woudsma is called Eerste Vondelpark, referring partly to the fact that the surrounding streets are named after Dutch poets and some of these poets have a first (Eerste) and a second street named after him (alas, not her).
