Salon at the Posthoorn Church: Twice a year SALON/ curates a fashion-meets-art-meets-design exhibition at various locations in Amsterdam. Mimi Berlin visited the Posthoorn Church location the other day. Dutch knitwear label “youasme” designed an installation for the Church Altar, it contains a movie of all sorts of explosions in black, accompanied by a retrospect of their garments in black. Fashion Designer Marleen Elenbaas also created a movie: “Optionals”, with parts of clothing and matching silhouettes of sewing patterns. We can try and describe these installations as good as we can but it’s always best you go an see for yourself, there is more on show through February 9, 2014. The Posthoorn church is newly renovated and that shows! It also has floor heating which is a nice bonus in Wintertime. This small church with it’s very high, neo-gothic, ceilings and lovely stained glass windows lies in the middle of a busy shopping street; de Haarlemmerstraat. The Posthoorn church is designed by architect Pierre Cuypers and was finished around 1861. (Mr Cuypers later also designed the Rijsmuseum and the Central Station in Amsterdam)
