Boijmans TV Episode 11. Shame
There are some wonderful nudes on show in Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. Voluptuous and rounded, by Aristide Maillol - or muscled and trained by Auguste Rodin. Yet it doesn’t often happen that naked people walk through the museum. In episode 11 of Boijmans TV, our guide Bregje actually entertains a group of naturists. Next to Rodin’s Eve, dressed only in their birthday suits, they discuss shame, the position of man in creation, and the loss of paradise. In the meantime, artist Zeger Reijers confides in security guard Arie that he perhaps should be ashamed of ‘Rotating Kitchen’, a performance in which a complete kitchen, with everything you can think of in it, is slowly ground into destruction. Reijers enjoys cooking and compares it to producing art. As chef and artist, he likes to combine ingredients from all over the world. He particularly looks forward to the moment when he can ask his guests or his audience: well...? Well...? Jordi thinks that Reijers’ rotating kitchen looks a bit like the kitchen at home after his father Marco has cooked a meal. And the naturists in the museum make him particularly enthusiastic: nude, nude, nude - art, art art! But who is the severely bespectacled artist who offers Mandy at the desk an art work, for which the working title - mushroom dick - seems much better than the official English name? Mandy doesn’t really know how to react to the compliments about her beautiful red lips. But she has the perfect place for the art work!
