Music-stand Bergharen

Municipality of Wychen

For the municipality of Wychen I made in the little village Bergharen a big photograph of 5,5 meter diameter. Inspired by Italian ceiling-paintings of the 17th century, several residents of the village were asked to model for a big ceiling photograph on the bandstand in the middle of their village. Right now they are looking downstairs in the bandstand listening to the music. I had asked to have the whole building painted light blue to emphasise the feeling of being 'in the clouds'. When the work was unveiled the whole village turned up complete with the local brassband.
