claudy jongstra installation

I recently wrote about the work of Claudy Jongstra. I was so glad that I remembered there are public installations of her work in the Netherlands. When we were in The Haugue we visited the Central Government and Library Building where the entire vertical surface of a wall was veneered in hand felted wool. It is a beautiful thing to have such works of art available to everyone in a public building.

The handcrafted installation was a stunning contrast to the sleek shell of the structure. Amazing.
