Legend of the Seamonster, 2019

installation consisting out of 3 large textiles

 

When I was asked to create a new work for Almere, I decided that I wanted to write the city’s first legend. Since the city of Almere has only existed for a very short time, it doesn’t yet have history of myths, legends, or other ancient storytelling. I decided to write a story for the harbor, about a seamonster.

 

After reading a lot of similar legends, I chose three elements that seem to be crucial about any seamonster-story: The sound the monster makes, the way it looks, and the requirements that are needed to see the monster. Each of the tapestries tells about one of these elements.
