Exhibition design for Blue Bliss: nearly 150 works of art selected by curator Maartje van den Heuvel on the theme of aquatic recreation in relation to the Dutch landscape, varying from seventeenth-century painting to contemporary video.

Temporary exhibition walls were specifically designed referring to the special aesthetics of the signs and beacons from the international maritime buoyage system. The walls are materially adjusted to the differentiated spaces of the Zuiderzeemuseum and constitute an open labyrinthian grid, modestly recalling the iconic installation display of Lina Bo Bardi in the Museum of Art of São Paolo (1957-68).
