Exhibition Queen Beatrix

Eric van Straaten - 3D printed sculptures

In the exhibition ‘Once upon a time‘, Eric van Straaten reacts to the implications surrounding the abdication of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands on April 30, 2013. Two new works place the upcoming successor (Willem Alexander) and his possible successor (one of his three daughters) in a fairytale-like atmosphere. The sculptures give an impression of the ambivalent feelings that one can imagine when ordinary children are ‘upgraded’ to real princes and princesses.
