A picture of an art installation. Can that also be art itself? Here's what the background information provided by the municipality of Utrecht had to say about the piece:

Riots, arson, looting, fighting. In 2011, protesting British youths left a trail of destruction through the cities. Why remains unclear, but on social media a traditional African saying was quoted: ‘If the young are not initiated into the village, they will burn it down just to feel its warmth.’ In other words: if you exclude the young, they will burn down the city and warm themselves by the fire. With this text as a beacon on the facade of Hoog Catharijne, the British Nathan Coley makes us think.

Nathan Coley makes installations and drawings as well as photos and light sculptures. They are all about how people use buildings. What influence does the architectural space where we live, work or shop have on our social behavior? Coley investigates how he can influence the perception of our environment as an artist, for example with a text.

The artwork was realized as part of the Call of the Mall event in the station area, 2013.


You can choose between an open or a limited edition of this print. The limited edition comes in three different sizes and only 10 prints are available for each size. A professional lab will print the limited edition prints and send them to me for quality check. I will sign and date each print by hand on the front before shipping it to you.

You can also get this print as an open edition, which has the same three sizes and no limit on the number of prints. This option is more affordable than the limited edition. A printing lab will produce the open edition prints and deliver them straight to your door.

Prints are made to order, so it will take 1 to 2 weeks for your print to be ready and delivered. Limited edition prints may take a bit more time, as I have to check and sign them myself. Open edition prints will usually arrive faster, as they are sent directly from the lab. I have done my best to keep the shipping cost low for you, no matter where you live in the world.
