Kevin van Braak
Artist Kevin van Braak from
Arnhem used trees that would be slated and cut down to build a woodworking workshop, between the Stadsvilla and the deer area. Kevin is an artist who not
only designs, but also builds, and that is why there will be non-stop sawing,
sanding, and hammering at his workshop during SONSBEEK ’16.
Kevin has invited more than 25
artists, designers, and architects to make works. They will work together,
share their knowledge, temporarily suspend their individual artistic practices,
and share their work process with the public. That explains the name OXT,
which refers to oxytocin: the hormone that creates feelings of trust and
All of the works will
ultimately be exhibited around the woodworking workshop. OXT consists of
a growing number of wooden attributes. You see it grow and grow, faster than
even the healthiest trees in the park.
