Lily was Here. Temporary Installations with the Indelible Mark of Lily van der Stokker
(Frank van der Ploeg) The Low Countries - 2005, № 13, pp. 302-305
Lily van der Stokker is a wallflower who is very much in demand. This pop star's playlist just keeps getting longer. As a solo artist or in a group. Actually, all that's missing is for T-shirts to be sold with the names of the cities that she's appeared in. But Lily van der Stokker is not a musician, but a serious visual artist and perhaps also a composer of epigrams. She may like to refer to her art as ‘graffiti for girls', but she's doing nothing on the sly, at night or illegally. She shares the obsession of the paint-can sprayer, but she does it nicely with a brush and at the request of the sophisticated art world, which she supplies with her ‘tags' and ‘pieces'. And even if it is only temporary: Lily was here. Even if it's only on the retina and whether you like it or not. What does she care?
