De reis van Batik / The journey of Batik

Wallpaper-installation at the exhibition "Paper in progress". The exhibition opens Friday 9 Juli at 16h and will last till 25 Juli. The painting on the wallpaper is based on the famous "Batik Lasem". During my stay in Indonesia I visited the workshop in Lasem and bought a really beautiful Batik there. I also used the motif of the birds in my ricecarpet. The other wallpaper parts feature my bird named Batik. Real versus translated birds. This part of the installation I showed already during the Open Studio Route last year at Rosa.
