Interviewed - April 2018
Kunstspot is an interesting platform in Groningen with many good stories about art. If you want to know what's going on in the art scene of this vibrant city, you have to follow them. I was lucky that one of the editors, Karlijn Vermeij, came to the Wall House, just before the opening on 31 March. Read the interview here (in Dutch).
At about the same time a podcast appeared with a conversation about my exhibition in the Wall House, via about:blank, where I am in a mentorship.
Nomination - April 2018
My series Rabbit was nominated for the Fine Art Photography Awards, category Abstract. Congratulations to all winners and thanks for noticing my work!
Groninger Museum WALL HOUSE - March 2018
Saturday March 31st is the opening of my installation The Flux is resilient in the Wall House of the Groninger Museum. You can find me regularly in the original living room of this remarkable building since January. I am building an installation in which I allow myself to be guided by the space. Part of the installation are photographs not previously exhibited.
Throughout the days I spend in solitude in the Wall House I experience all kinds of threats to reality I bring to life. Hard versus soft, rectilinear versus organic, colour versus colourless: The Flux is in trouble there. In the installation I let The Flux fight the battle with the Wall House. Now that this is being written it is not yet certain who wins. Hopefully you will be as curious about the result as I am.
The opening of The Flux is resilient will be on Saturday March 31st at 12:00 am by Andreas Blühm, director of the Groninger Museum, and Gea Schenk, photographer and curator of the Wall House. Please check the invitation for further information.
The Flux is resilient can be visited until Sunday June 3rd. On this closing day is also the Kunstroute Hoornsemeer (and my birthday). On that day I will make the final balance: did The Flux win or not?
The Wall House is open to the public during the weekends. The address is A. J. Lutulilstraat 17 in Groningen. On the website of the Groninger Museum you can find information about opening hours and accessibility. See also the Wall House event on Facebook.
I bring you The Flux, be welcome!
Exhibitions coming up - February 2018
I am proud to say that my work will be exhibited in some very beautiful places in the coming months.
First of all, wednesday February 14: the opening of the exhibition Time Machine in Galerie Sehnsucht. Up until March 24th my work "ONLY TO SEE BEYOND THE NAKED EYE" will be on display in a group exhibition. So, Rotterdam.
March 31th is the opening of ‘I bring you The Flux in The Wall House’. The Wall House is part of the prestigious Groninger Museum, so you can imagine how nervous I am. I will present something completely new, fully inspired by the building and space, until the beginning of June.
Here we go...!
Publications - January 2018
It is a happy New Year. In the first weeks of January two publications of my portfolio appeared online. First of all, the beautiful Float Magazine published an extensive selection of previously published and completely new work. I was surprised by the beautiful combinations that Float Magazine made.
Then my work appeared on NOICE. I follow NOICE. for some time on instagram. They always present beautiful work. Never mainstream and always carefully chosen. Of course I am therefore proud that my work is now also part of the NOICE. collection. Later this year issue 11 of their printed magazine will be published, in which my work will also be featured.
