This summer from 4 June to 2 October 2005 a large part of the Kröller-Müller Museums sculpture garden will be transformed into Atelier Van Lieshouts Happy Forest. More than thirty art works colourful sculptures and mobile homes by Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) will be installed on the events field and in the surrounding woods, ensuring an exciting treasure hunt for the visitor.

Atelier Van Lieshout is an internationally renowned multidisciplinary company that works on contemporary art, design and architectural projects. The artist Joep van Lieshout founded AVL in 1995 to emphasise that his various products are the result of teamwork. AVLs output varies from mobile homes, modular bathrooms and kitchen units, sculptures, large installations and other functional art works, often in AVLs hallmark material brightly coloured polyester.
Happy Forest contains several works designed for self-sufficient living, a recurrent theme in AVLs work. The mobile units include Mobile Home for the Kröller-Müller, Workshop for Weapons and Bombs and a complete Pioneers set. Small living units and sculptures representing internal organs will be dotted amongst the surrounding woods.
