CALL FOR ALL THAT ARE ACTIVE IN THE TREE NURSERIES

 

You are cordially invited to visit the Van Gogh gallery. A gift is waiting for you here from January 20.

Artist Floor Snels studied the drop and its history during a working period in Zundert. She was interested in the change of the image of tree nursery.

For a long time there was a big distinction between rich and poor in Zundert. As a fight against poverty, a start was made around 1840 on the exploitation of pieces of land to plant trees here for the sale of the wood. This has become the tree nurseries as we know them today. Nowadays, tree cultivation is seen as a prosperous sector with a lot of specialist knowledge. Zundert has a close-knit community and the great separation between rich and poor seems to have disappeared. In the gallery, Snels shows a deconstruction of the capital of the town hall. She copied the ornaments from leaves, waste from the trees, or compost.

Everyone who works in tree growing is called upon to pick up an ornament as a gift. In this way, Snels wants to emphasize the importance of every individual within tree cultivation. And to ask how things are today with the hierarchy within the church where previously two groups lived completely past each other.
