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

Young Utrecht Delight @ Galerie Sanaa, Utrecht (NL)

canvas2-small

Above: sneak peek of a new work!

YOUNG UTRECHT DELIGHT

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.

Opening: 28th of April, 16:00hr. Galerie Sanaa, Jansdam 2, Utrecht (NL).

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.

Artist-in-residence at Kunsthal45, Den Helder: new work!

zeemijn001-klein

It’s been awfully quiet on this blog for the last couple months…. but fear not! There’s no reason to worry. I’ve just been awfully busy.

Today I finished an artist-in-residence project at Kunsthal45 in Den Helder (NL) where I made an entirely new work, a naval mine made from transparent organza as part of my soft series. The project will be on view until the 13th of August at the Kunsthal.

Lots of events are coming up meanwhile and after this exhibition, among which:
– Nasty Women Exhibition in Mexico at the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia in Mexico City,
– Utrecht Down Under in (of course) Utrecht,
– And my work will be part of the annual Fotoroute at Windkracht 13 Gallery, Den Helder.

For an extensive overview of all my future plans, please see my >website<

For now, here are some photos of the freshly finished naval mine. The results are really nice, the colours look different from every angle.

Last Saturday I finished shooting documentation material in The Hague for my website and a new performance video.

I’d like to thank all the amazing performers and their efforts, without them it would be impossible to make the documentation of the performance itself a success!!

The video of the performance will be shown for the first time at the BYOB (next Thursday in Utrecht, see this blog post).

For now, here’s a sneak peek!

Hooray! New work for Unnoticed Art Festival

I’m happy to announce I’ll be making a new work for the Unnoticed Art Festival.

Unfortunately for you my dear, this will remain secret until the festival has taken place.

 

Here’s some more info about the festival:

The Unnoticed Art Festival returns for a second edition this summer, following the first Unnoticed Art Festival in 2014 and the subsequent publication of the book Unnoticed Art.

On June 24/25 the Unnoticed Art Festival will take place in an undisclosed city in the Netherlands. 

Hundreds of artists worldwide have responded to an Open Call for performance concepts. From these submissions, a performance program has been compiled by a committee of five artists. The Unnoticed Art performances are to be realized in the public space, on the street, with no explanation and with no fore-warning. The objective is to go by unnoticed. Taking place in everyday settings, these performances involve hiding the unusual within the usual. Passersby may perceive these actions, but will not recognize them as performance art. 

A group of thirty participants will perform the Festival’s program. These participants need not be artists. No performance experience is required. All that matters is an interest in the nature of the festival, and a willingness to experiment. These participants have a double role: they will perform the selected works whilst simultaneously acting as the only audience to the event. Since the festival is not announced, these participants are the only ones ‘in the know’ – hence, they are the only audience that is aware of being an audience. 

A book will be compiled following the second edition of the Festival. This book will include all the concepts from the program, in addition to presenting the personal experiences of all the participants, as both actors and audience. 

The program of this year will include works of:

Alice Vogler (US)
Andrew McNiven (GB)
Bucky Miller (US)
Chris Wildrick (US)
Connor Frew (US)
Edwin Stolk (NL)
Elia Torrecilla (ES)
Florence Jung (FR)

Design My Privacy @ Z33, Hasselt (BE)

Ohh, finally an update from my side!

Things have been rather hectic the last couple months: I moved to a new place, moved my studio (again…), and I started working on 2 new projects. Hence the silence on this blog.

Also my website needs a major update, but hey, I’m working on it! (;

One of the other things that have been going on behind the scenes is that the Design My Privacy exhibition (featuring my project Rogier) is travelling to Z33 in Hasselt, Belgium! Yay!

The show opens next Saturday at 19:30hr. Insert lazy copy-paste from the Z33 website:

27.03.2016 – 29.05.2016
Design my Privacy
Nowadays, we continually share data: a message via WhatsApp, a picture on Instagram, an update on Facebook or an e-mail through Gmail. With whom do we really share this data? And how can we make sure that our personal data stay strictly personal?
This exhibition addresses issues of online privacy and digital surveillance. Next to several historical examples of encrypting, ‘Design my Privacy’ also shows some surprising contemporary strategies by more than 35 young designers and artists to maintain control over our data.

PROGRAM OPENING NIGHT

7:30 p.m. Welcome
– Welcome speech by Igor Philtjens (Deputy of Culture of the Province of Limburg)
– Introduction by Jan Boelen (Artistic director Z33)
– Presentation publication ‘Design my Privacy’ by Mieke Gerritzen (Director MOTI)

20:00 – 22:00 Visit of the new exhibitions
also Toegepast 20

20:00 – 24:00 Reception

LOCATION: Z33 – house for contemporary art, Vleugel ’58, Zuivelmarkt 33, 3500 Hasselt.

There is Absolutely No Cause for Alarm @ De Punt, Amsterdam

6-web

Yep, that bright number is my work for this exhibition! ON AIR is a wifi tracking device that shows how many people in the space are traceable by the devices they’re carrying with them. It traced the visitors of both parts of the exhibition, both at De Punt and Studio Kepler. IT’S SUPER EFFECTIVE!

Click >here< to see more photos of this exhibition.

Some snapshots from Noorderlicht Photography!

Here we go!

Special thanks goes to the Noorderlicht crew for making this exhibition look amazing, and the Mondriaan Fund for supporting my work!

There is Absolutely No Cause for Alarm @ De Punt, Amsterdam

There is Absolutely No Cause for Alarm is a visual collection of thoughts on the suppression of human freedoms expressed by emerging international artists Jan Adriaans, Ella de Burca, Aljaž Celarc, Ehsan Ul Haq, Phelim Hoey, Marge Monko, Joyce Overheul, Irina Popova, Dorian de Rijk, and Victoria Ushkanova. The exhibition offers a basis for further reflection on the subject of slavery, and the forms it took in the twentieth century and in modern day life.

“This is the historical reality of the soul, which, unlike the soul represented by Christian theology, is not born in sin and subject to punishment, but is born rather out of methods of punishment, supervision, and constraint.” wrote Foucault in Discipline and Punish: The birth of the Prison.

Within the current show artists are questioning these methods and the ways they have formally altered during the last hundred years starting from Roger Casement’s discoveries on human right abuses in Peru in 1911, and ending in our time when, to paraphrase Yanis Varoufakis, banks have the same threatful potential as tanks.

Venue: The exhibition will inhabit two spaces: De Punt and the neighboring newly opened Studio Kepler Amsterdam (Frans de Wollantstraat 82 and 84, Amsterdam)

Artists: Jan Adriaans, Ella de Burca, Aljaž Celarc, Ehsan Ul Haq, Phelim Hoey, Marge Monko, Joyce Overheul, Irina Popova, Dorian de Rijk, Victoria Ushkanova.

Vernissage:  18 September 2015, 17.00 – 22.00

Opening hours: 19 – 27 September 2015, Tuesday – Sunday, 12.00-18.00

Curator: Katia Krupennikova

This exhibition is part of Unseen Festival, a 10-day celebration of photography in Amsterdam. 

For this exhibition I’ll be making a new small work. This work will be realized with help of the Mondriaan Fund and WifiProfs.

WAMS #1: Data Rush @ Noorderlicht Fotofestival

whenartmeetssciencelogo

The Rogier project will be exhibited at the When Art Meets Science #1: Data Rush exhibition, as part of Noorderlicht Fotofestival in Groningen!

When Art Meets Science (WAMS) is organising a set of side events as part of the international fotofestival Noorderlicht. The theme of this year’s edition of the festival is “Data Rush”, exploring the tension between freedom and control, privacy and surveillance in the virtual world.

WAMS is organising an exhibition of objects and installations reflecting on the theme, a debate between scientists and artists on the theme and the relation between art and science in general, as well as a series of lectures exploring the theme from different perspectives.

The aim of the project ‘WAMS #1: Data Rush’ is to further increase the social awareness about these developments, and to boost both scientific and artistic developments in this domain.

WAMS has selected nine artists to exhibit their object and installations as part of the larger fotofestival Noorderlicht. The venue is the Old Sugar Factory, Energieweg 10, Groningen.

The following artists are part of this exhibition.

Recap: Diep Gaan @ Galerie Sanaa, AK47 @ Artspace Flipside

So, the Diep Gaan exhibition ended well, with an artist talk (including me) on the 5th of July. It was incredibly hot at the gallery, at least half of the people (including me) looked like a sweaty mess, lol!

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 21.47.12

I finished the last of my 1000 cranes on Thursday the 2nd. For all photos of all (yes, all) cranes, please view my instagram account @joyce1000cranes.

Also, the exhibition at Artspace Flipside ended on the 12th of July. Decent photos of the satin Kalashnikov I made will be online on my portfolio website soon!

Cultural Sundays: The Battle

culturelezondagenbattle

This Sunday there’s another edition of Cultural Sundays in Utrecht!

This edition’s theme is The Battle, and I’ll be taking part in a talkshow at Galerie Sanaa (Jansdam 2, Utrecht). Other participants are philosopher Rob van Gerwen and sports psychologist Jan Huijbers. The talkshow starts at 15hr, hope to see you there!

1000 cranes – update!

IMG_20150614_170746klein

So I’m currently working on a performance where I’ll fold 1000 cranes according to the Japanese tradition, and I just wanted to share some pictures with you. Things are going steady, and with 4 days of folding/working I already made the railing system to keep all birds up, and folded 172 birds. This might not seem like an awful lot, but the first birds went reeealllly slow, haha.

Keep track of my progress online via Instagram: @joyce1000cranes

Or drop by at Galerie Sanaa, Utrecht on Wednesdays ’til Sundays from 12 until 18hr!

New work for ‘Diep Gaan’

001-wit-klein

I’m currently working on a new performance piece for the ‘Diep Gaan’ exhibition, organized by LUCY in de lucht (click here to go to their website). I was wondering, since the theme of the exhibition is ‘going deep’, how it would feel to commit myself to something quite enduring, and probably also very boring from time to time. I’ve never done something like that before. (No, knitting a sweater doesn’t count.)

So that’s why I decided I’m going to fold 1000 origami cranes during the Diep Gaan exhibition at Galerie Sanaa (Utrecht, NL), which will be opening on Sunday the 7th of July!

Above you can see a photo of an unfolded crane, one of the first cranes I ever made, and below’s the logo of the exhibition project:

150109_LU_logo_diepgaan_def_300px

The exhibtion project is quite huge: there will be lectures, talk shows, live performances and film screenings next to the exhibition at Galerie Sanaa! Hope to see you there!

Go to the website of LUCY to find more info on this subject.

Opening on the 29th of May: AK47 in Artspace Flipside, Eindhoven!

flyer-compleet-web

Here I will show you the satin rifle I made, of which you could see a work-in-progress photo a couple blog posts earlier.

Some text from the press release:

The Kalashnikov is an iconic weapon. The silhouette is very recognizable, particularly due to the curved
magazine at the bottom. The efficiency and the ability to use it in almost all circumstances, makes the AK 47
a global symbol. Images abound from child soldiers to freedom fighters parading and posing for photos with
this machine gun. It has found its way onto flags and tattoos. Through its recognition, the image also serves
as a symbol against the established order. Time for reflection and discussion. How does an artist deal this
symbol?

Participating artists:
Stef Fridael, Anthony Kleinepier, GTVR, Victor Sonna, Joshua Rutgers, Lody van Dulken, Daniel Wechsler,
Nick J. Swarth, Sjoerd van Lankveld, Goof Salimans, Rient van Tiggelaar, Freek M. Willems, Lucia
Sotnikova, Imke Brunzema, Fieke van Berkom, Jordy Koevoets, Yosvany Malagon, Jan Willem Campmans,
Daniel Djamo, David Marszewski, Joseph Huot, Erik Vermeulen, Paul Verwilligen, Munne, Luk Sponselee,
Dennis Voorkennis, Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert, Art van Triest, Joyce Overheul, Sierk van Meeuwen,
Tom Velthuis, Toos Nijssen, Grafische Ongehoorzaamheid and Klaus Pinter

Official Opening: Friday 29th of May 2015, starting at 20hr.

Exhibition: 30th of May-12th of July 2015

My work has been selected to be part of the upcoming UtrechtDownUnder exhibition in the city centre of Utrecht (NL). Two years ago the exhibition was held in the cellars of the Oudegracht (canals) in Utrecht, this year the exhibition will be held in the freshly deserted Wolvenplein prison.

Yesterday I went there to have a look at the location and it was very very awesome!

After the break you can see some more photos.
