Instead of using Daisy’s wood for a design, Yuri Veerman chose to tell a short story about a tree who gave her wood out of love for a human. He will tell this story at the finissage of Pushing up Daisy on the 29th of November.
Yuri Veerman (1982), lives and works in Amsterdam) is an artist and designer whose work focuses on cultural symbols. It revolves around the relationship between intangible concepts (country, crisis, nation) and their tangible forms of expression (flag, coin, national anthem). Veerman goes in search of new stories concealed within the separate elements by deconstructing these visual, material or auditory manifestations.
