Ask anything

  • Zofia BochiƄska asked

    Is it possible to access the video for private use?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Zofia, it is possible to view the video for purpose of study in one of our viewing cabines on the second floor of the depot. And I think you might even be able to see it on the internet (Eisinga's own website, Youtube). But it is an artwork and unfortunately, you cannot just download and use it. The artist needs to approve your plan/idea. Kind regards, Els

  • Christiaan Fuhring asked

    I don't really get the purpose of the movie. Can anybody explain?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Christiaan, this video does not have a fixed meaning and purpose. It's enigmatic character and atmosphere is meant to trigger your eye and mind, make you wonder and think. You could for instance be struck about the harsh (weather) conditions that make the sheep flock together, protect and console each other. The video though, also shows that not all sheep in the herd can be save. Like a fairy tale, this little story, immensely beautifully told, could be transposed from sheep to human beings, and tell something about contemporary conditions. I hope this is helpful. Kind regards, Els
