Vaarwel Spakenburg [Goodbye Spakenburg]
Collection: De Vleeshal Collection, Middelburg (The Netherlands) (Inv. no. VH0176).
Vaarwel Spakenburg from 1994 is a literal farewell to Koelewijn’s birthplace, a small fishing village to the north of Utrecht primarily known for the traditional costumes of its female population. The confrontation with Spakenburg’s strict Reformism is given expression in the artist’s mural drawing, executed in old-fashioned green soap, representing a clothes line full of drying garments – a reverie on the metaphor of cleaning and (both ethical and aesthetic) purification.
