Word maar snel beter

Materials: Billboard, 730 cm × 570 cm.

The words ‘Word maar snel beter’ (‘Get well soon’) are written in colourful capital letters on the facade of the Buda Bridge. It is an uplifting message for those who see and need it. The artwork is a billboard based on a drawing Lily van der Stokker made in 1992. Using felt-tip pen on paper, she sketches cheerful motifs such as flowers, clouds, and other decorative elements in fluorescent or pastel colours that remind us of candy. She adds short, recognisable phrases such as ‘het ga je goed’ (‘I hope you are well’), ‘Get well soon’, and ‘Word maar snel beter’. Together these drawings make up the series ‘Wishing You Well’.
