In cooperation with: Wendel ten Arve, Eric Roelen and the gardeners of the parc.
Flowershovel was a site-specific installation to celebrate the Dutch tulips in the parc were flowering. The installation was made in three days with branches from trees as birch, chestnut and a mix of Dutch tulips were planted in the parc. This all was made possible with the generous help of the gardeners of the parc. Many visitors took the opportunity to photograph themselves between the sea of flowers.
