How appropriate that the public part of the apple-peeling project of Arnold Schalks and Annette Witteman is situated amidst the national orgy of merchandizing and bargaining in celebration of the Dutch queen's birthday. Layer by layer we are lured in the labyrinth of meanings. While the juice is dripping from our fingers, our efforts are joined to get the dark process going. How art fertilises the world. We advise you to be around when it's happening.
