TRAVEL | Taturo Atzu | the garden which is the nearest to God


Although it can be really busy in town with the many visitors Amsterdam welcomes every day, I am still deeply in love with my hometown. 
I live in a quiet area myself and within no time I am downtown to enjoy the small shopping streets, or bike along the canals. Did you see the pictures and giveaway of last weeks family boat trip I made? Amsterdam still amazes me from the water!

There is always something happening in town, and I really wanted to show you the wonderful pictures Silvia made of the project of 
Taturo Atzu on the roof of the oldest church in town. Silvia is an Italian photographer and we previously worked together on some blogpost and the article for the vtwonen love blogs magazine. 

These pictures were made during a photo shoot on the roof with Tania, a jewellery designer from Sydney. You can see those pictures on Silvia's website, and maybe you love a photo shoot with her yourself!

Japanese artist Taturo Atzu is internationally renowned for his temporary art projects which transform our experiences of monuments, statues and architecture. Atzu's first public project in the Netherlands centres around the historic weather vane and the small roof turret, with the Angelus Clock, of the Oude Kerk. The project will run till September 6!






Come Closer is a series of public gatherings on the roof of the Oude Kerk. The evening programme, running from August 13 to September 6, brings together thinkers, musicians, artists, Amsterdammers, neighbourhood residents, and the curious up in art installation “The Garden Which is the Nearest To God”

by Japanese artist Taturo Atzu: a panoramic terrace with a spectacular view over Amsterdam. In the midst of a city in motion, Come Closer offers a moment of reflection. For 12 evenings special guest speakers share a new perspective, a unique story or a performance with the public. High above the city in the open-air, a sort of contemporary hagenpreek (open-air sermon), Come Closer invites you to listen, look, experience, think collaboratively and to speak up.
