Art in the neighbourhood

The artwork De Zilverlingen (the pieces of silver) is a collaborative project of the inhabitants of De Zilverling, housing corporation Stadgenoot and visual artists Mirjam Bakker and Wil van Blokland. It can be found in the central meeting hall of the apartment building ‘De Zilverling’, a sculptural building designed by LEVS architects.
The silver building and ‘pieces of silver’, silver coins, were the basic elements for this installation.

During various open house workshops young and old worked hard on a chandelier with over a hundred portraits of each other and themselves.
