This week IBB has been collaborating with the St. Albertus primary school on a very special project. During the renovations / conversion of the old friar convent in pietermaai 10 alcoves were made on the walls dividing the school grounds, the first primary school of the island, and the former friar quarters. The renovators approached IBB to come up with a way to fill these alcoves so the students wouldn’t be left with a blank wall to look at. It was decided that the IBB and St. Albertus students were going to collaborate on a number of relief to be permanently mounted in the available alcoves. These reliefs will come to depict bible stories, in line with the school’s catholic roots, yet re-imagined trough the students own imagination. The students will be working under the guidance of ceramist Ellen Spijkstra.
