(Nederlands) Servies

(Nederlands) Voor het Museum van Bommel van Dam ben ik een project aan het organiseren rondom servies en eetgewoontes geïnspireerd op het kloosterdorp Steyl. In 2021 zal het servies (deels) gebruikt worden in het nieuwe restaurant van het museum.

(Nederlands) Andere Aarde

(Nederlands) Mijn nieuwe werk, geëxposeerd in het Bijbels Museum, is geïnspireerd op de 11de eeuwse mystica, theoloog, kruidendeskundige, componist en abdis Hildegard von Bingen. Zij verkreeg in haar leven meerdere, zeer beeldende visioenen, die ze optekende in een aantal grote boeken, versierd met miniaturen en marginalen. Op basis van deze middeleeuwse beeldtaal ben ik collages gaan maken, die haar verhalen nog abstracter vertellen dan dat ze al waren, waarbij het maken voor mij een haast meditatieve bezigheid is.

Park Pietá

(Nederlands) In 2018 en 2019 deed ik onderzoek ik twee parken: het Parco Via Appia in Rome en het Amstelpark in Amsterdam. Gedurende het onderzoek filmde ik de handelingen van verschillende zorgdragers in de 2 parken. Het resultaat is een videowerk dat zowel in Rome als in Amsterdam getoond wordt.

Het Gareel

(Nederlands) Het Gareel is een educatief project voor TENT Rotterdam, en houdt het midden tussen een ritueel en wetenschappelijk experiment. In totaal komen in oktober en november 500 kinderen langs.

Study on the IPK#53

At Art Rotterdam I have shown my first work made in response to my research, which I will continue to develop over the coming years. For this research, I visit various laboratories across the world that operate an International Prototype of the Kilo. During these visits, I study the actions surrounding the IPK.

Dust Particles

The project Dust Particles was an ode to dust. From shipyard to elementary school, from art fair to farm; every location has its own history, and with that, its own kind of dust. At 11 locations in Amsterdam and its surrounding areas, several columns were placed where one could view dust using a microscope.

Judas’ Ritual

In response to the theatre show Judas by Suburbia I made an autonomous video installation that reflects on Judas’ relation to waste and rituals.

The Decay

On the 13th of June 2015, The Frans Hals Museum showed a new work of mine in the exhibition ‘Work in Progress’, in which 3 masterpieces of the museum were being restored in-situ. In my work I paid tribute to the restored decay of both the painting as well as the room in which the work was shown.

Dust

Commissioned by the exhibition space PARK, I traveled to Montserrat (Spain) where I gathered dust from the exact spot where there was an apparition by Mary in 880.

Mary Magdalene

I was artist-in-residence for two months at MILK Studios, which is located in the heart of Amsterdam’s Red Light District. My project was a comprehensive study of the many representations of Mary Magdalene.

Art Tarot

Being part of De Parasiet, an art collective, I helped design an Art Tarot pack using the Museum van Bommel van Dam’s collection. The Art Tarot can be used as an instrument to predict the future, to obtain life lessons or simply as a board game.

Letting go

‘The Art of Letting Go’ is an artistic investigation into nature and the patterns of decomposition in the human body. The project was centered around the figure St. Francis whose body is ‘incorruptible,’ according to Catholic teaching. The importance of nature and human suffering are central to his teachings.

Workshop Relic

Commissioned by Noordjes Kinderkunst, I developed the workshop ‘Make Your Own Relic’, in which primary school children make their own relics from leftover bits and pieces found at monumental buildings.

Nature Rises

I worked on the project ‘Nature Rises’ for the Museum Elburg which consisted of two videos and a pamphlet. For the project I took a piece from the museum’s collection deep into nature and then left it behind. The work was on show at the Museum Elburg from 16 November 2012 to 16 March 2013 as a part of the exhibition ‘In Conversation’.

Path of Suffering

Together with Creatief Initiatief and Rikko Voorberg, I co-founded the art route Path of Suffering. The art route took place in De Baarsjes, a neighbourhood in Amsterdam, and exhibited art works on the theme of ‘suffering’. The exhibit ran from 13 February till 30 March 2013. During the last three days, an intimate Suffering Festival took place.

De Tribune

From 2010 to 2011 I was curator of the exhibition space De Tribune. Exhibiting artists included Mathilde van Beekhuizen (NL), Sachi Miyachi (JP) and Esther Kempf (SW).

My Own Ritual

My Own Ritual was a project created for Allerzielen Alom which guided people in making their own ritual to remember a deceased person in a special way.

Flower Hand Germ

I produced a video installation titled Flower Hand Germ for the Vredeskerk (Church of Peace) in 2011. The art work was inspired by a passage from the Bible, the parable of the sower (Matthew 13:1-9). Four video works were shown along with specially-recorded music and a small card that visitors could take home.

Judas Iscariot

Five of my video works were exhibited in the Museum of Religious Art in 2010 on the theme of Judas’s confusion when he meets Jesus. The video works were accompanied by specially-recorded music, and visitors took home a pamphlet.

Maria Causa Salutis

As part of my graduating exhibition at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2006, I wrote a text which narrates the life of Mary in 33 chapters. I was inspired by a prayer card of Mary during a trip to Florence and inserted the image of her face in contemporary photographs of women in everyday situations.

Stroom West

In 2010 and 2011 I worked in collaboration with various artists, theologists and actors to organize Stroom West, a series of (theater) evenings around religious themes and stories.

Ave Maria

I curated an album, consisting of seven songs, which narrated the story of Mary. The album was sold in the Oude Kerk (Old Church), Amsterdam, in 2006.
