About

This winter, Christian Boltanski is creating a new composition for the Oude Kerk. He is using the entire church and deploying several monumental installations on the theme of what will come after our life has come to an end (NA). On the gravestone floor, the artist designed a labyrinth of tombs suspended above the graves, creating new perspectives and an architectural layer that emphasizes our predecessors. You can contribute to the exhibition. In a contemporary confessional chair you can whisper a number of names of people buried in the Oude Kerk. A recording of the whispers will be played during the following weeks in the choir. Over time, all of the whispers will be turned into a comprehensive soundscape that remains as an intangible part of the Oude Kerk. Boltanski considers his work repeatable, like musical compositions are re-enacted time after time, even after the composer is no longer alive.
