Temp'i mi Ten
Selebrando Bida

By Saida Hernandez

Date: September 18 till October 31

The exhibition Temp’i mi ten - selebrando bida (From my time - celebrate life) shows a nostalgic collection of stories captured on canvas. These detailed stories of Curaçao in years gone by may be considered as a unique and original contribution to the preservation of our cultural heritage. Chandeliers, rocking chairs, Thonet wicker furniture, side tables, crocheted tablecloths, balconies with wooden shutters and nostalgic vistas. Everything delicately finished with the warm, cheerful colors that are so typical of Saida’s personality and her work.

Saida Hernandez (Curaçao, 1935)
Temp’i mi ten - selebrando bida is Saida's sixth solo exhibition. She has participated in several group exhibitions. In 1981 she held her first exhibition at the Curaçao Museum and again in 2005 and this marks her 4th solo at Landhuis Bloemhof.

Saida Hernandez was one of Telecuraçao's first female newscasters and program makers. She is best known for her cooking show ‘Kushina di Oro’ and the various cookbooks she has published.

‘Temp’i mi ten – selebrando bida’ can be seen until October 31, 2020. Landhuis Bloemhof is located at Santa Rosaweg 6, next to café 'Tap Maar In' and is open from Tuesday to Saturday between 9:00 and 14: 00 hours non-stop, info@bloemhof.cw, www.bloemhof.cw.

CODA WARDS

CODA AWARDS FOR THE CATHEDRAL OF THORNS

We are proud to share with you that the Cathedral of Thorns, a labor of love created of 25 million spikes, has won the CODAaward 2020 in the Landscape category.

The CODAawards celebrate design projects that most successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces.
 
Our artist Herman van Bergen started work on this project eight years ago on Curacao. Wanting to demonstrate the futility of religious strife, his vision also included a focus on the original Curacaoan inhabitants, the Caiquetio Indians. The CODAworx jury praised the Cathedral of Thorns for the way Van Bergen and his volunteers “created an actual building out of native shrubs, and in the process, honored Mother Nature and the Free Spirit.”
 
Landhuis Bloemhof congratulates Herman van Bergen and his team with this achievement. And we are grateful and happy that through his work Curaçao will also be promoted internationally.
