Interview with RTV Oost about my art and the tapestry that’s now part of the collection of Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle

YES, MUSEUM DE FUNDATIE HAS BOUGHT MY LARGE RED TAPESTRY!!

I’m a veeerrrryyy happy panda!!

In other news, RTV Oost dropped by for their weekly bulletin Spunck!, portraying young artists and their artistic practice. The programme also pays attention to the exhibition of John Heartfield at Museum de Fundatie, and the HKU group show ‘Van wie is de wereld?’ (also at Museum de Fundatie).

Did I already mention Museum de Fundatie in this post..?

These are mad times we live in! Mad!

All the sudden there is a lot of press attention for my work. I am very honoured but still feel a bit weird and awkward about it, haha. Anyway, the Utrecht UITcast dropped by and interviewed me about my work.

Thank you UITagenda Utrecht and Pam van der Veen for featuring my work!

A lot of projects have been cancelled or postponed until further notice because of the corona virus. It’s a mad house around here.

Expoplu Engage: On the line of the Equator

Expoplu Engage: On the Line of the Equator

17.05.2019 – 09.06.2019
Opening 17.05.2019 / 20:00 – 23:00

Curator: Youri Appelo

Kunstenaars: Mirte van Duppen, Hannah Dawn Henderson, Joyce Overheul, Julius Thissen, Eef Veldkamp, Puck Verkade

Meestal als er in de krant iets te lezen is over ongelijkheid, heeft dit vaak betrekking tot financiële (on)gelijkheid. Zoals geregeld te lezen is, begint het gat tussen de allerrijksten en allerarmsten steeds verder te groeien. On the Line of the Equator vraagt zich af of de vraag in hoeverre wij gelijk zijn in de samenleving, alleen te beantwoorden is door een financiële balans op te maken. Gelijkheid en ongelijkheid zijn verschijnselen die op meer terreinen van toepassing zijn dan alleen die van het kapitaal en bezit. On the Line of the Equator staat stil bij meerdere voorbeelden waarin ongelijkheid wordt blootgelegd; soms op een directe en kritische wijze, soms op een poëtische of humoristische wijze.

Het onderzoeken van een thema zoals gelijkheid binnen het format van een tentoonstelling is een ingewikkelde doelstelling. Vragen doemen dan ook direct op: gelijkheid op globale schaal? Of alleen hier in Nederland? En waar heeft de onderzochte gelijkheid betrekking op? Op geld? Gender? Of drinkwater? De meeste vormen van ongelijkheid blijken zich ten eerste te bevinden in een complex web van omstandigheden, oorzaken en belangen, waarbij grote onderliggende en onzichtbare structuren soms een belangrijke rol spelen. Seksisme, gender ongelijkheid, (institutioneel) racisme, discriminatie op basis van nationaliteit en vormen van financiële ongelijkheid zijn voorbeelden waarbij ongelijkheid wortels heeft in diepere structuren, zoals overblijfselen van een koloniaal verleden, de vorming van staten, kapitalisme en de invloed van religie op onze normen en waarden. Ten tweede zijn er voorbeelden waar ongelijkheid resultaat is van een veelvoud aan factoren, oftewel waar sprake is van intersectionaliteit. Hoewel het symbool voor gelijkheid een weegschaal is, groeit het bewustzijn dat ongelijkheid niet slechts aan twee kanten te meten is.

De titel On the Line of the Equator is een metafoor voor het idee dat van een koorddanser die balanceert op de (denkbeeldige) lijn van de evenaar; het middelpunt van onze planeet dat balanceert tussen twee magnetische polen. Het verwijst naar de fragiliteit van het balanceren van de koorddanser, en onderstreept de continue beweging; van links naar rechts, van voren naar achteren en van boven naar onderen. Bij een val wordt er willekeurig en onbedoeld positie gekozen boven of onder de evenaar terecht te komen.

Kunst is in staat grenzen op te heffen, onderliggende structuren zichtbaar te maken en een poëtisch toekomst narratief uiteen te zetten. On the Line of the Equator poogt vormen van ongelijkheid en haar oorzaken te confronteren om uiteindelijk een voedingsbodem te creëren voor verandering. Of zoals James Baldwin zei: “Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced”.

Alleen op een Landgoed @ Bergarde Galleries

IMG-20190410-WA0030

For the exhibition project PLAYGROUND at Bergarde Galleries, Heerjansdam I made a remake of the 1971 radioproject Alleen op een Eiland.

Between the 3rd and 7th of April I camped at Landgoed het Buitenland to find out what happens at the estate when people are not around. During my stay I recorded an audio documentary, which can be listened to below:

More info about the project can be found here for now: https://bergarde.com/nieuws/kunstenaar-op-het-landgoed/

My personal portfolio website will be updated with this project soon.

The new tapestry @ Willem Twee, Den Bosch

Yes, I’ve finished a new tapestry! Based on one of the street photos I took during my visit to Tehran, Iran.

The tapestry and photos from a brand new photo series (‘Men of Quality’) will be on view until the 26th of May. Below you can also see the banner I made in Iran which was used to take photos on the streets with passersby. The banner is made entirely by hand, its letters exist out of beadwork. All fabrics used for the banner were purchased in Tehran, Iran.

Nasty Women Portugal 2019, 8th-10th March

Who knew! I didn’t manage to send in some new works but my work was still part of the Nasty Women Portugal 2019 exhibition at Galeria Monumental in Lisbon! Apparently they still had a print of mine and hung it on the wall, lol. And it even sold.

Artist in Residence at the Aria Residency, Tehran, Iran

It’s been awfully quiet on this blog. But don’t worry, I haven’t died, my work hasn’t died, everything and everyone is okay. (:

Something I could not really post up front about is me being an artist in residence at the Aria Residency, as part of the Aria Gallery in Tehran, Iran. I stayed at the research residency site for four weeks in January 2019. An artist talk and exhibition followed, and more than a hundred people visited my open studio exhibition event at the end of my stay.

More info about the residency can be found here: aria-residency.com

Some photos of the open studio can be found here: http://aria-residency.com/open-studio-joyce-overheul/

More info about the works I made over there will be online soon, as soon as I’ve updated my website. I also continue in The Netherlands to make more works as a follow-up on the residency, more about that will be online too as soon as I’ve finished those projects.

Bunker Exposities #35 Video Programme, The Hague

http://bunkerexposities.nl/nu-in-de-bunker/

From 24th June – 8th July 2018, open every day between 12.00h – 20.00h.

This exhibition is meant to give an idea of the variety of aspects in video and film. Three works include DPRK, a monumental documentary by Joyce Overheul made during her trip to North Korea, Treelogy, a series of interventions by Nuni Weisz and a collection of Encounters by Anita Horváth. All artists have a different cultural/artistic background and use the camera in a completely different manner.
On Sunday 8th of July there will be a “finissage” with an artists’ gathering.

Brad Pitt himself didn’t show up at AK24….

….but we had a blast! Look at my wallpaper, isn’t it amazing?

If you didn’t manage to get your own piece of Brad wallpaper, shout out to me and I could perhaps send you a poster… They are popping up every here and there around Utrecht so pay close attention and you might be able to spot one.

Young Utrecht Delight @ Galerie Sanaa, Utrecht

28th of April-9th of June: Young Utrecht-based (or related) artists at Galerie Sanaa!

My brain was quite foggy last couple weeks so I didn’t think about updating this blog earlier… hence the silence, hence this can’t really count as an announcement anymore, but at least there are some pictures of the fun we had.

If you pay close attention to the photos you might even see a new work…….

Some text from the Sanaa website (yes, I’m lazy beyond belief today):

Galerie Sanaa presents Young Utrecht Delight. Showing the combined but diverse work of young HKU alumni. Jessica Skowroneck shows pure paintings that radiates with light. RaQuel van Haver is interested in the interaction and abrasion between identity, background and ethnicity. Guy Vording looks for photographs and texts that almost always have to do with events where the control is lost. In the sculptural paintings of Cecilia Rebergen she searches for the boundaries of the painted object. Joyce Overheul creates and manipulates human behavior and confronts people with their own actions through multiple media. Benine du Toit analyses tensions, emotion and reluctance toward one another in South Africa. Mariaan van den Berg focuses on adaptability through her spacial works. The work of Robert Roest is visually rooted in both the contemporary world of new media as in the history of painting.

Civil Disobedience @ In de Ruimte, Gent (BE)

civildisobedience

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ At this exhibition, I will be showing a new work! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Publiek programma 18.05.2018 – 03.06.3018

Vanaf 18 mei tot 3 juni gaat In De Ruimte op zoek naar de grijze zone. De plek waar artistieke ambitie en burgerlijke verantwoordelijkheid elkaar kruisen. Is de huidige politieke, economische en sociale ruimte nog rekbaar en hoe kunnen kunstenaars deze ruimte herindelen?

Kunstenaars Harmen de Hoop, Eddy Joseph De Buf, Sil Flann Krol, Sarah Lauwaert, Willem De Haan, Marijs Kempynck, Joyce Overheul, Charlotte Ros, Roeland van Trigt, Sam Gunst + TBA

Civil Disobedience is een oproep naar kunstenaars en burgers om ‘protest objecten’ te presenteren die aansluiten bij hun eigen visie over het huidige maatschappelijke systeem. We onderzoeken destructieve en utopische visies en alles wat daar tussen valt.

We exposeren een autonome situatie die zich binnen en buiten de expositieruimte begeeft.

Gedurende drie weken vinden er lezingen, workshops, een tentoonstelling en interventies plaats in en rond In De Ruimte, Gent.

Gesteund door Stad Gent en Kunstencentrum Vooruit

Ancient recap no3: the first community art tree-things have been installed!

Yay! That’s the only thing I’m going to say about it at this point. Four more tree sculptures will follow during the next two months.

Stay tuned for more information, you could also follow the Rijtuigenbuurt’s Facebook page.

Yes, these objects look very different compared to the ones I normally make. Since this is a community art project, actually all objects have been made by residents of the Rijtuigenbuurt area in Nieuwegein themselves under my guidance.

Ancient recap no2: I can finally reveal what I made for We Like Art’s Secret Postcard Sale!

Well, I could have done that way earlier but as you could read in the previous blog post, I had some hiccups getting things done…

So, here it is: that bottom right thing is mine! Well, it was mine actually since it sold during the exhibition… It’s a pincushion, it even includes an embroidered autograph.

Ancient recap no1: MILK @ This Art Fair

Since I’ve been stuck at home with pneumonia for over a month now (and a severe cold before things escalated a bit), I didn’t have the opportunity yet to share some photos of the MILK exhibit at This Art Fair.

So, here they are…!

We had great fun alltogether, I even sold a print in the end.

Special thanks goes to MILK Amsterdam for inviting me, This Art Fair for the great exhibition venue and Janneke Kornet and Esther Hoogendijk for being amazing artists to collaborate with.

Artist talk @ Museum Meermanno, The Hague

denhaag-joyce_Knevel

Sunday the 28th of January I held an artist talk at Museum Meermanno, The Hague. My project on the 17yo Rogier has been part of their exhibition The Art of Reading (De kunst van het lezen).

Curator Paul van Capelleveen wrote a blog entry about the afternoon:

http://pvc-kb.blogspot.nl/2018/01/192-artists-talks-door-marinus-van.html

The Art of Reading is on view until the 4th of March this year.

Preparations for This Art Fair… Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam

20171210_123531

While Nieuwegein turned into a Winter Wonderland, I was sewing like crazy to get my new work finished on time for This Art Fair, an art fair in Amsterdam held from the 27th until the 30st of December. Thank you so much, MILK Amsterdam for hosting me in your exhibition!

http://www.thisartfair.com

http://www.milkamsterdam.com

One of the things I’m making is an organza replica of this interior plant:

20171127_204515

The entire interior will be on display during the show. Along with Esther Hoogendijk and Janneke Kornet I’ll be making home-specific works for this particular display.

Next to the organza plant (photo-in-progress below) I will also show my very first bronze sculpture with Singularity black paint (kinda like Vantablack but slightly different) and some home-made Bismuth crystals.
