Bunch of Tulips
The tulip must be one of The Netherlands’s most stereotypical symbols. Did you know that during the tulip-mania in 1630 tulips were so popular that the price was about as expensive as an Amsterdam canal house though? The Netherlands exported almost two billion bulbs per year then.
Bunch of Tulips from the Hungarian Peter Koros is literally a blown up interpretation of the Dutch tulip-craze. By recreating tulips in a huge inflatable installation his artwork could almost be seen as a work of Pop Art. The amount, the size and color represent our culture of mass consumption. His kitsch approach gives thisa historical and touristic symbol a new context.
