Armchair (1991) Dora Dolz

St. Get Hoek
About the artwork

Artist Dora Dolz made a ceramic Armchair with a fan-shaped backrest and armrests in the shape of a cornucopia and a shell. The colors that Dolz has applied are red, blue, green, orange and white. Dolz 'ceramic pieces of furniture look like thrones and seats with different kinds of attributes incorporated into them. This gives the chairs something theater-like, but they also function as a kind of still life. A miniature copy of the armchair has been placed in the Jan van der Ploeg housing complex of Humanitas. The sculpture was placed in 1991 as part of the Art Plan Oude Noorden in collaboration with the Residents' Organization Het Oude Noorden, Project Office Stadsvernieuwing and CBK Rotterdam. The original location was at the Hildegardiskerk on Verbraakstraat in Noord, but in 2014 the work was moved to Hoek van Holland and given on loan to the Get Hoekt Foundation.
