A film of Marijke Annema and Thalia de Jong

11 and 25 February, 10 and 24 March from 2 to 6 pm

in the temporary Slow Loket
Oostelijke Handelskade 34, Amsterdam (NL)

Located directly across from the historic Ontsmettingsgebouw (‘disinfection building’) where almost a century ago guests of the Lloyd Hotel were scrubbed down before boarding the boat to South America, the Slow Loket offers a more loving, Slow approach to cleaning.

Designer Marijke Annema created a collection of tools that extend the curve of the arm, give
sensual expression to the fingertips, and help one explore hard-to-reach places. Presented here as part of slowLab’s ongoing SLOW LLOYD program, these strange and
beautiful objects are a metaphor for taking time and care to get to know the Lloyd Hotel, the neighbourhood around it and the people who live here.

Come get dirty with Marijke and try out her tools on friends and strangers!
