Sleepover at Foam in Amsterdam

Do you want to spend a night at Foam in a room decorated by Hutspot in a beautiful all natural bed by COCO-MAT? That can be arranged, but first you need to send in a brilliant motivation to the question “Who is joining you on this adventure and why?”.

The most original motivation wins a special prize: an overnight stay for two people on Saturday, January 16th in the exhibition Paul Bogaers – My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in Foam.

You can participate in four easy steps:
1. Write your motivation
2. Open the entry form
3. Select ‘free entry’ and ‘two persons’
4. Enter your details and motivation (comments field) and confirm

The winner will be announced on Tuesday, January 12th, 2016.

Upon arrival, we will bring you to your special hotel room. The main room in the exhibition is turned into a beautiful room by Hutspot Amsterdam. You’ll find a large bed by no one other than COCO-MAT, bedside tables in the midst of all the artworks. A host will be available at your service for the evening and night.

After you have left your belongings in the room, you will get a private tour through the exhibition. The museum is at your disposal for the complete night so take the flashlight and roam around. Explore the rooms to compare all the different faces of the sculptures or make up stories from your bed by looking at the masks on the wall. You will be invited for breakfast in the morning. At ten o’clock the museum opens to the public and the Bush of Ghosts awakens for everyone to see.

This night is made possible by Hutspot Amsterdam and Foam.

In the exhibition My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Foam presents work by Paul Bogaers (Tilburg, 1961) which he created in the last five years.

During this period, his work has developed from two-dimensional studies to the three-dimensional domain of assemblage, sculpture and installation, where photography plays a vital role. Bogaers also uses paper mâché – a material not often embraced by fine artists.
