    ‘Er staat een reus aan mijn balie’, zo meldt Mandy een metershoge laatkomer voor Bregjes rondleiding bij de beveiliging. Bregje stond juist op het punt het schilderij 'De nieuwe generatie' van kunstenaar Jan Toorop te gaan bespreken met haar groep jonge vaders met baby’s in draagzakken. Toorop verbeeldde met dit schilderij de voortrazende tijd, maar wilde er volgens Bregje ook de kwetsbaarheid van het ouderschap mee uitdrukken. Intussen neemt een puberzoon Jordi zijn vader Marco mee naar de installatie van Tanja Smeets, zijn favoriete werk. Deze omgeving, gemaakt van duizenden plastic betonvlinders, geeft hem de moed een gesprek over persoonlijke groei met zijn vader aan te gaan. Voor Tanja Smeets gaat groei alle kanten uit, haar werk is open en zoekt zijn weg langs de vaste punten in de omgeving. Aan de kassa vindt wildgroei plaats, de flyers waarmee Mandy mensen oproept op haar te stemmen overwoekert de hele balie en uiteindelijk haar zelf. Het bloedstollende slot toont ons de excessen van de wildgroei die door Tanja Smeets wordt aangericht: rennen voor je leven!

      ‘There’s a giant at my counter,’ announces Mandy to security, when a giant of a latecomer reports for Bregje’s tour. Bregje was just about to discuss the painting ‘The new generation’ by Jan Toorop with her group of young fathers with babies in carriers. In this painting, Toorop showed time rushing by, but, according to Bregje, he also wanted to express the vulnerability of parenthood. In the meantime, Marco is taken by his adolescent son Jordi to see the installation of Tanja Smeets - it’s Jordi’s favourite work. This environment, made from thousands of plastic concrete butterflies has given him the courage to start a conversation with his father about personal growth. For Tanja Smeets, growth can go in all directions; her work is open and searches for a route past fixed points in the environment. At the ticket desk things are getting out of hand: the flyers Mandy uses to get people to vote for her are threatening to overrun the whole counter and her as well! The blood-curdling finale shows the excesses of proliferation caused by Tanja Smeets: run for your life!

        Jonieke van Es, head of the Collection and research Sector, zooms in on the painting ‘Meal of Friends’ by Charley Toorop, a key piece of one of the most important Dutch painters of the first half of the 20th century. On this painting, Charley Toorop immortalised not only herself, but also others such as the poet Adriaan Roland Holst, the architect Gerrit Rietveld, the sculptor John Raedecker, the photographer Eva Besnyö and the painters Pyke Koch, Rachel Pellekaan and Wim Oepts. In addition, her three children can also be seen in this painting: her sons Edgar (also a painter) and John Fernhout (active as film-maker) and her daughter Annetje Fernhout.
