In 'Everything is Round', Madelon Hooykaas and Louis Andriessen explore the relationship between the city of Utrecht, the nature it contains, and the surrounding universe. Both artists grew up in Utrecht; with this installation, they are revisiting the city of their childhood years.

In her video, Hooykaas alternates detailed footage of natural beauty in the city with images of the universe. The latter images were created with the support of Sonnenborgh Museum and Observatory, and are accompanied by the first-ever electronic composition by Andriessen and Peeters.

The art work is part of a series of works commissioned by Centraal Museum Utrecht, with the goal of letting visitors view the city through the eyes of an artist. The production of the video installation and composition was made possible by a generous contribution by the Mondriaan Fonds. Gaudeamus Muziekweek contributed to the creation of the composition. The work will be part of Centraal Museum’s permanent collection.

'Everything is Round’ will be on display from 8 September. A preview of the work is offered as part of the Centraal Laat programme on 5 September.
