“Instead of a work of art in the passage, Faye’s advice led to a passage of art!”

— Wim-Jaap Eising , Asset Manager Winkels / Bouwinvest

In 2013 Bouwinvest commissioned the development of a real estate complex ‘Nowadays’ in Amsterdam. After a strict selection procedure artists Arno Coenen, Iris Roskam and Hans van Bentem were selected to create a site specific artwork: Amsterdam Oersoep.

“During the project development of ‘Nowadays’ in Amsterdam, Bouwinvest was looking for a partner that could advise us to do ‘something with art’ while realizing the new Beurspassage. Faye adviced us to integrate the artwork in the core of the project. Instead of a work of art in the passage, this advice led to a passage of art, now known as ‘Amsterdam Oersoep’ (Amsterdam Primordial Soup). Faye has guided us in selecting the artists and has created a bridge between the world of the artist and the world of real estate.”

— Wim-Jaap Eisig, Asset Manager Winkels / Bouwinvest
