‘BALANCE’, PRESENTED BY NINAMOUNAH FOR ROOM ON THE ROOF
‘Balance’ is a sculptural expression of elements from Ninamounah’s FW21 collection and examines the properties of fungus as a resilient life form. The installation consists of a sculptural mannequin made from mycelium substrate. A silk suit is slashed open to make way for luscious pink oyster mushrooms, ripe and fertile at the same time. A perfect balance between culture and nature. Encapsulated in a transparent humidified box, the sculpture will transform over time.
On view at de Bijenkorf, Dam 1, 1012 JS Amsterdam.
Spatial Design by Geijer Studio.

Room On The Roof is an artist workspace and innovation testbed in the tower above the Amsterdam de Bijenkorf store. This aerial studio in the heart of the city is a place for reflection and platform for fresh ideas – the work must spark delight or debate. De Bijenkorf invites in local and international artists, writers, musicians, architects and designers to create new work inspired by important themes; from sustainable fashion to 100 years of Bauhaus to men’s mental health. The work is presented across store windows, on the shop floor and in unexpected ways.
