2009 Poldermuseum Heerhugowaard The Netherlands
The Poldermuseum is a former water pumping station, now a regional museum. During the summer of 2009 their Vriendenkamer (Friendsroom) transformed into a Dollroom. As the Poldermuseum also serves as a marriage ceremony location there was a special focus on dolls in wedding costume. The rest of this exhibition was based on color rather than origin; dolls were grouped together being mainly red, green, blue and so on.
I didn't know what to expect. It was great to see these dolls. So many countries represented. Fabulous!!!
Stunning, diverse and most of all colorful collection. Worth an article in the Antiek & Verzamelkrant magazine.
Well organised display, great exhibition. An ethnologic impression. I enjoyed it...
