project by Sara Vrugt at Oude Kerk in Amsterdam
Artist Sara Vrugt creates large-scale embroidery installations. From November 15 Sara will work for several months in the church atelier together with local residents, passers-by, tourists, and prostitutes on an installation for the Oude Kerk. 118 church seats from the Oude Kerk will form part of the exhibition. Her ambition is not only to create art collaboratively but also to make topical issues visible and open for discussion. The red light district on the square of the Oude Kerk has been a lively topic of conversation since the initiation five years ago of the 1012 project to reduce drugs and prostitution. Through this participatory embroidery project we take stock and discuss the changing role of the Oude Kerk in the city and its significance for the individual.
