In 2019 and 2020 we are celebrating the fact that Brabant was liberated 75 years ago and that we have lived in peace ever since. Lives were changed dramatically during the Second World War. Brabant Remembers recalls these unusual, inspiring and personal stories in which a life-changing moment is the central theme. These stories are the central starting point for a cultural programme across the province. One of the iconic projects from this programme is the STILLEVENS (still lifes) collection, in which key scenes from these stories have been recreated in miniature form by Studio Rocco Verdult.

In 2019 and 2020 we are celebrating the fact that Brabant was liberated 75 years ago and that we have lived in peace ever since. Lives were changed dramatically during the Second World War. Brabant Remembers recalls these unusual, inspiring and personal stories in which a life-changing moment is the central theme. These stories are the central starting point for a cultural programme across the province. One of the iconic projects from this programme is the STILLEVENS (still lifes) collection, in which key scenes from these stories have been recreated in miniature form by Studio Rocco Verdult.

 Concept
Social designer Rocco Verdult from Eindhoven conceived the STILLLEVENS concept in his role as creative curator for Brabant Remembers; a collection of 75 scale models in which the audience can actually walk around a story and view the key scene from various perspectives. Incidents from WW2 for which no images exist are given form by STILLLEVENS, making it easier to imagine them. Being able to actually see that moment means you will remember it and recount it. It’s up to the viewer to decide; “What can I see? What happens next? What does that evoke in me?”

The collection comprises mainly white tableaus in which the scene takes place during the day. Night-time scenes are black. Only the main characters in the scene have any colour, giving the human aspect of each story a central place, and giving the audience the chance to interpret it for themselves, to fantasise or to empathise with the situation as it was. Each visitor can then decide whether to read the actual story themselves or discuss it with others.

The exhibition can be visited on the balcony of the LocHal in Tilburg from the third weekend of November until 31 May 2020.
