MERRY GO ROUND EUROPE

MERRY GO ROUND EUROPE

K. DE BOER, W. KREYKAMP, I. HULSKAMP AND S. SCHAGEN

THE NETHERLANDS

The whirligig that, just for a moment, lifts you out of your earthly existence and, once you’re back on firm ground, gives you a fresh outlook on the world around you. That’s the theme of Merry Go Round Europe (2015), a work of the Dutch artists Karel de Boer, Ward Kreykamp, Ivo Hulskamp and Stephan Schagen. It is a work of art everybody will recognize, because who didn’t whirl around on a kermis or a fair?!

The artists themselves want the work to be a message to Europe. ‘We think that for everybody in Europe it would be a good idea as well to step outside its reality now and again, in order to forget their problems and worries for a while and to remember who they really are.

About K. de Boer, W. Kreykamp, I. Hulskamp and S. Schagen

The Dutch quartet, consisting of an architect, a designer, a decor builder and an industrial designer, work from their own specializations but their collaborative work goes even beyond these. They work within the disciplines of design, art and architecture; they even talk about ‘making lust’. Their works are the result of commissions or the responses to competitions and are designed to confront reality.
