Wooden Vegetable Crates of Jan Henderikse in permanent collection M HKA
The installation 'Wooden vegetable crates' from 1962 by Jan Henderikse was included in the permanent collection of the M HKA, Antwerp. The work was purchased two years ago by the Friends of the M HKA.
The work is an accumulation of vegetable boxes and has been developed as a concept in three variations. The original installation dates back to the end of the 1950s, but it was during the Hessenhuis exhibition in 1962 that the installation took its definitive form. In 2013, Kunstzolder.be also presented the work in the retrospective exhibition opened by Jan Hoet in Eeklo.
