Other Photographic Matters - January 2020

In Other Photographic Matters 10 artists show mixed forms of photography and other art disciplines. Their relationship is the use of photography as a starting point and the sense of urgency to fuse with other artistic forms in order to complete their story. Other Photographic Matters is part of Art Rotterdam Week.

The participating photographers are Arjan Post, Birgit Matschullat, Els Kocken, Godelieve Krekelberg, Jasmijn Duterloo, Jessica Scholtes, Mariëlle Gebben, Matt de Groot, Niels Watermulder and Tobias Asser. The way in which they mix photography and other disciplines varies. Sometimes a photograph is the start of a work that acquires a completely different form, sometimes photographs interact with objects, sometimes space forms an integral part of the photographic work. In Other Photographic Matters, photography is never limited to an isolated image on the wall.

Experience where photography can lead.

Tipping Point - August 2019

New collective!

Tipping Point is a collective of eight visual artist who are united on the base of the similarities in their vision as image-makers. We see ourselves as representatives of a changing society in which daily life is under pressure. We are all concerned with the question of what happens when tensions increase into a breaking point, from different motives and angles and with different forms of expression.

The title of the collective refers to the point at which a reversible change becomes irreversible, often with dramatic consequences. The tipping point is both challenging and frightening at the same time, and it is precisely in this field of tension that our work is intended to be made and shown. Our perspectives and forms of expression are as diverse as the ways in which a person may respond to tensions. This is how each of us reflects on the chaos in which we live and presents a mirror to our audience.

We will present ourselves for the first time as a collective during UNSEEN Amsterdam at Circle Art Space, Kerkstraat 67, Amsterdam

Lithuania - August 2019

The Truth is one of 25 selected projects for The International Photography Sympsoium NIDA 2019 in Lithuania. This means that my work will be screened during the “Futures and Intersections” competition winners’ showcase on September 13th in Nida. 


Fotofestival Lenzburg - April 2019

Fotofestival Lenzburg launched the following call: "Is beauty a way to endure the hardness of the world, or an instrument to be accepted? The search for beauty is a theme for people and our society. By thinking about images, we can break down clichés, discover and understand ourselves and our world. The Lenzburg Festival wants to draw the attention of all experts and amateurs to a theme that can be developed in many directions and encourages reflection".

The jury selected 60 of the approximately 450 participants and more than 4000 photographs submitted, including my Fleeting Fantasy. This work will be on display in the old town of Lenzburg from May 17th to June 17th.

...iets met ruimte - April 2019

Within a month the exhibition '... iets met ruimte' will open in Galerie Pictura in Groningen.

11 Photographers (1 duo) each consider the concept of 'space' in their own way. They explore the space both in and outside the image and together they push the boundaries of photography and of Pictura. The exhibition brings together a camera lucida, a clothing collection, an asymptote, a beam of light, an undercurrent, the truth and the course of the moon.

...iets met ruimte is a group of photographers who, in varying compositions and in different spaces, are regularly creating new exhibitions around the concept of 'space'. Their second exhibition is in Pictura. This time they are: Adrian Faes + Katharina Pöhlmann / Anna Witkowska / Arjan Post / Corine Hörmann / Goran Turnšek / Hanna Snijder / Jan Theun van Rees / Mariëlle Gebben / Mémé Bartels / Mo Verlaan / Sander van der Bij.

During this exhibition I will present the current state of affairs of my project #TheTruth. In this project my starting point is a recent abstract work. In 2018 I gave this work, a pink infinity, the title The Truth. In the project #TheTruth I try to look at this abstract pink image from all perspectives, to question it, to dissect it.

I cross my own work like a neutrino, offering different perspectives on The Truth, which, just like reality and fantasy, is constantly changing.

My presentation consists of more than just photographs.

Curious? Come to the festive opening on Sunday 12 May, at 3 pm. Or join us on Wednesday 12 June, at 8 pm. Then the Noorderlicht Fotosalon will head out to Galerie Pictura for a one-off event.
