The two gigantic lamps that appear between lampposts on the Golden Bend are a wonderful sight. Jeroen Henneman created 'Two Lamps' specifically for this beautiful part of the canal; it’s where the wealthiest people in Amsterdam once lived and where lawyers, bankers and insurance advisors now work.
Jeroen Henneman (1942) is a visual artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. He studied at the Amsterdam Institute for Applied Arts Education and at the Higher Institute for Fine Arts in Antwerp. Since then, Henneman has made paintings, drawings, graphics and even theatre performances and television programmes. He is most known for his sculptures, which he calls ‘standing drawings’. He makes portraits in this way but often chooses (seemingly) unimportant, ordinary objects with clear shapes, such as wheels, boxes or coffee cups. Henneman is guest of honour of Amsterdam Light Festival's 7th edition.
