On September 8th, we will launch the most recent art project by illustrator and artist Joost Stokhof (also known as The Things We Are). Last July, Joost was the first Artist in Residence in Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam ever. For one entire week, he changed the comfortable surroundings of his home in Utrecht for the dynamic and ever changing environment of the Hortus Botanicus. Here, he slept, ate and captured his surroundings, resulting in an inspiring series of pencil drawings. Several artist from different disciplines joined Joost during his week in Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam, including Anne-Fleur van der Heiden, I am Oak, Eefje de Visser, Matteo Myderwyk, Nuno dos Santos, Falco Benz and Sef.
The launch on September 8th, will be accompanied with performances by Falco Benz, Nuno dos Santos and Eefje de Visser. Next to the exhibition, Joost will present a compilation of drawings and the EP featuring a selection of songs written and recorded in Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam by the mentioned artists.
