Yvonne Dröge Wendel

Yvonne Dröge Wendel talks about De Coupé an installation done in collaboration with Lino Hellings for the nursing home De Bieslandhof in Delft. In six comfortable seats arranged as though in a train, the (psychogeriatric) residents can experience a ‘ pleasurable form of doing nothing’ by traveling along the Dutch polder landscape. The entire process of this public domain art installation was continuously and meticulously documented from felt workshop to final design on the project website www.bies.nu.

She initiated the project and book An Architecture of Interaction, rolled the big Black Ball and is head of the Rietveld Fine Arts department.
