Ma Petite in Metal Cathedral

ER Classics Desktop 2022

FLYERThe author of Ma Petite is Margré Mijer. She is a graphic designer and photographer, and flies as a stewardess with the largest airline in the Netherlands. Her motto for life is 'joie de vivre' and that comes in Ma Petite clearly expressed. 

In Spain the steamboat deck is scrubbed, in Finland the burrs are dragged away from the irons of the reindeer sled. Wishlists are drawn up in the Netherlands and Belgium. Ma Petite is a nice book about the pleasure of driving 2CV that deserves a place on your wish list.


Ma Petite was recently presented at De Metaal Cathedral in De Meern in Utrecht. A unique location where you can also rent room space.

Oh yeah; And Ma Petite can be ordered via www.ma-petite.nl. For 24,95

About the Metal Cathedral

The ecological cultural incubator & autonomous workshop for artists in Utrecht came about by accident.

But you can also go there for presentations & photo shoots.

Something exciting is happening in the former Buurtschap De Meern, on the edge of the buildings of Leidsche Rijn and close to the A2. There, in recent years, a sanctuary has been created where ecology, art, culture, nature and cultural entrepreneurship are brought together in an exceptional building, the Metal Cathedral.

Initiator Maureen Baas was in 2011 looking for a studio to make theater. In the winter on the bike she found this magical place. The former metal factory Metak decided after more than 40 years to move to a "real" factory building instead of a converted church. The current owner wanted to make apartments in it after the departure of Metak. So it could be rented temporarily. It was raining inside and the building was heavily neglected. But that didn't spoil the fun! Long live the transience! Because this is a crazy location, too good not to share. Nowhere in the Netherlands does a historic building have such a unique transforming history. In addition, there are only two buildings throughout the Netherlands that have hammer beam trusses. And that in De Meern!

In 2012, partner Abel Tattje moved in and the breeding ground grew rapidly. In the meantime countless artists have been housed, the building has been purchased and the Metal Cathedral is here to stay! The building is now being refurbished step by step and more and more is being programmed. It is a coming and going of local residents, city dwellers and countrymen. There is a lot to get and bring.

Are you curious? Then welcome! The church doors are often open to the public and you can always make an appointment and / or come spontaneously. They are crazy. With making, and especially, to make this beautiful building suitable for culture.

Because cultural entrepreneurship requires a lot of inventiveness and work.

Maureen Baas is a theater maker and heavenly keeper of the Metal Cathedral.

Abel Tattje is the main supplier of extraordinary issues at the Metaal Cathedral.

 

"As if a miracle could happen at any moment.
Such a place is the Metal Cathedral ” 

This bizarre and beautiful building houses an autonomous breeding ground. The new Mecca for Utrecht makers, artists and performers! This breeding ground opens its church doors to the NEW cultural religions… It stimulates cooperation locally, nationally and internationally. The Metal Cathedral is available for the creation of installations, exhibitions, mixed media extra vaganzas, making performances, giving workshops, as an annex, but also as a location for photo shoots, weddings, corporate events.The Metal Cathedral offers undeniably many possibilities and Lake…!

A unique monumental location where artistic entrepreneurs from different disciplines can experiment with work, meet and inspire each other. In addition to the permanent studios, large open spaces are available for project-based use. Both in and outside.

Come and play!

Quote from Rommert Boonstra "There is such a thing as an official art circuit. Full of civil servants, policy documents and other qualities that are absolutely indispensable and that must be warmly welcomed, but which do not always make you happy becomes strange, remote places, where inspired souls set up something new on their own initiative, work more on my imagination. As if a miracle could happen at any moment.

Such a place is the Metal Cathedral. First a church, later a metal factory. And now the shepherds and constructors of structures have been succeeded by artists. The dogmas and the safety instructions no longer apply. The imagination has come to power. From now on everything is possible in the Metal Cathedral, on condition that you do the impossible yourself for a moment. ”
