Mission Dhuicque 2021

Mission Dhuicque 2021

The concept for 'Mission Dhuicque' is developed during a work period at Konnektor in the summer of 2020. Here I've received the assignment to investigate freely the Langerbrugge-South coupling area and the heritage site Langerbrugge Power Station, in order to make a suitable proposal for the light festival in Ghent 2021. As a work of art, 'Mission Dhuicque' consists of several layers and it does not take an easy position. After a short break, I am more than pleased to share with you that we are back on track. Together with Konnektor we are working on the realization of 'Position 2 - View of the Langerbrugge Power Station'. When we find the right support, 'Position 2' will be visable during the Ghent light festival - November 10 to November 14, 2021. The heritage of the Langerbrugge Power Station requires our attention. Will you help to celebrate this heritage and raise awareness about its importance and preservation?

Point of No Return 2020

Point of No Return 2020

The idea for 'Point of No Return' was developed in cooperation with Project Space Public and cancled due to a lack of support from among others the minucipality Zaltbommel - a city located along the river Waal. 'Point of No Return' proposed a collaborative artwork for seven days (30 January until 5 February 2020) referring to the evacuation of the Bommelerwaard 25 years ago. Together we would point at the level and moment when the water flows over the dyke. A strategic representation of a point visualized by people for days at which there is no return. Inspired by the (static) aluminium sculpture of Marcel Smink called 'High water' or 'boy in bathing suit'. The concept for 'Point of No Return' comments on these fixed art objects and is developed in response to human actions and the way in which responsibility is divided in the event of a threat, such as in the long struggle against water in the Netherlands. While global warming faces unprecedented climate challenges, we continue to point at each other when it comes to solutions. In January 2020 it was exactly 25 years ago that things almost threatened to go wrong in the Bommelerwaard.

Residence Park Belfeld a/d Maas 2018

Residence Park Belfeld a/d Maas 2018

The idea for 'Residence Park Belfeld a/d Maas' was developed during 'Reflector', a commission by Circular Art Lab Limburg. A close research on the theme of housing in Belfeld resulted in this village imagination plan. Circular Art Lab Limburg decided not to continue with this proposal. My collaborative art practise is centred around social topics in alternative partnerships. The issues around housing and the quality of living in this area ask for our urgent attention, therefore I am looking for alternative possibilities to further develop 'Residence Park Belfeld a/d Maas' in the upcoming year(s).

Achieve by Unity | Dawn of Justice 2016

Achieve by Unity | Dawn of Justice 2016

The idea for 'Achieve by Unity | Dawn of Justice' was developed during a research residency at Yeovil Project Space in 2016. 'Achieve by Unity | Dawn of Justice' was developed as a triptych that will be embedded in Yeovil's landscape and refers to a wide range of my findings. The triptych form arises from early Christian art and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. The title 'Achieve by Unity' refers to the text on the emblem of the Yeovil Town Football club. In an individualized society we can speak of a great achievement when collaboration leads to a collective effort; as we witnessed in Yeovil at the Wyndham Hill protests. My proposal is a ceremonial journey that leads us from cocreating a glass version of the lead Angel of The Angel Inn, towards a blue Batman with a bad knee on the spot of a fatal accident in Glovers Walk, towards an annual welcoming ceremony for newcomers seen from Wyndham Hill in collaboration with the Magnificent Flying Machines.
