Sweet Jesus


Backlit nativity scene made with liquorice strips and wine-gum lollies. One week install. 1160 x 660 x 15mm.

Installation #493, The Aanschouw, De Schouw, Witte de Wit, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The Aanschouw window project has been operating since July 2001. The installation is re-newed ever Friday night with a different artists' work and many beer-flavoured libations. I am the first ever New Zealand artist to do the project.
Liquorice and sweets are dear to the heart of Dutch culture and the beautiful lead light windows in the many, many churches here in Holland, conjured the memory of sticking half-sucked lollies to the window of our school bus when I was a young boy. Some things never change.
