Stemmingswisselingen is a limited-edition series of 8 handmade papier-mâché masks by Park Pardon, inspired by the 8 moods we have in store. It means ‘mood swings’ in Dutch, which perfectly encapsulates the abstract expressions of their characters and the fleeting nature of our moods.
As a nod to objects & sounds, we teamed up with Nosedrip, Vica Pacheco, Suzanne Kraft, Richard Greenan, Soft Focus, Haron, Barbarelle and Mapstation to give these moody characters a matching soundtrack.
meet bloeme and geran
Park Pardon is the whimsical world and creative playground of Bloeme van Bon and Geran Knol. Born out of their shared fascination for bringing characters to life, it is a collaborative project that brings their individual styles together to form a new narrative across drawing, publication and sculpture.
Since their first project together in 2012, the duo has already made a 52-page riso-printed book, an installation titled ‘The Considered Cabinet of Deliberate Thoughts’, and more than 200 handmade one-of-a-kind papier-mâché masks. Working across different mediums that tend to fall between sculpture art and functional design, their prolific output in the last years is very telling of their inspiring drive.
