Come Play
With Me

Ven y juego conmigo or 'Come and play with me' is created in the beautiful town called Rota, with great thanks to all the locals. Larissa used the streets as her studio, the sun as my lamp and she played with the objects she found. Larissa spent days with the fishermen, on food markets and in restaurants. Their she saw how food sources are treated fairly and purely.

She felt the urge to portray how consciously and sustainably they handle with their food culture and eating habits. It is an ode to Rota and it’s inspiring people. The still lifes are a reflection of their Spanish food culture in Southern Spain. — Rota, Spain

Villa Mondriaan, museum in Winterswijk, invited Larissa Ambachtsheer to make a new series inspired by the early works of Mondriaan. Her desicion was made easily: she saw the drawing Writing Girl for the series Het Schrijvende Meisje.

In the drawing of Piet Mondriaan we see a young woman. Larissa's phantasy took over and imagined the woman in reigional attice naked under their dress. This way the innocent woman in Mondriaans drawing get a whole new meaning.
