BoskLab: Johannes Bosgra


Exhibition Johannes Bosgra: Bomen van Bosgra (Trees of Bosgra) | Thursday 28 July to Sunday 31 July in De Harmonie

In the series Bomen van Bosgra (Trees of Bosgra), artist Johannes Bosgra reflects on his youth and origins by making images of trees that his ancestors had been growing in Burgum since 1700. With Bosk, a thousand new trees walk through Leeuwarden, among the old trees that have been in the city for centuries: grown by his ancestors. During his artist residency at BoskLab , Bosgra created new images that show the public how, after approximately 150 years, these monumental trees have now reached the pinnacle of their value for the city: aesthetically, landscape, climatologically, ecologically and cultural-historically. You learn about the importance of long-term thinking.
