Every year, Nest organises a One Nest Stand presentation for which academy students get the assignment to make a work in the sphere of one of the exhibitions of Nest. This year, eight students of the Willem de Kooning Academy deal with the theme Alchemy. In The Element of Surprise they shed their light on the transformation of knowledge and materials, on the non-rational sides of science, the Â quest for eternal youth, or on the need to add a spiritual value to the banal.
