Even after touring the world for two years, it’s always a joy to have the film shown back home in Amsterdam.
In just a few days, there will be a very special occasion: Azart – The Ship of Fools is an independent maritime theater group with a history spanning 28 years, which has presented their comic theater in 20 countries.
For the last two years, Azart has been moored at NDSM wharf in Amsterdam and in August this year, the ship sets sail on a one-way trip to the Southern Hemisphere along a dozen cities in South America, West and South Africa, India and beyond.
Before leaving Amsterdam, Azart will say farewell with a spectacular art festival from 13 to 23 July.
Rombouts and Droste were asked by SD WORX to integrate their alphabet of lines, the Azart, into its newly build headquarters.
One of the artists' ideas was to hang the whole of the Azart in one free unbroken line of copper, 16 meters long, from the roof of the entrance hall.
Because the sculpture was not to rest on the floor, copper was unfeasible, as it would be too weak to carry its own weight.
Moker searched for a solution and found a kind of metal that would be strong enough not to distort.
The combination of strength and lightness made the idea attainable.
The winding line of steel was polished like a mirror and then copper-plated electrolytically, to give the whole a high-quality copper-shining finish, the artists' original idea.
