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.
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.
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!
One of the things I’m making is an organza replica of this interior plant:
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.
I made a teeny-tiny new work for We Like Art!’s Secret Postcard Sale at the Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam. I’m not going to spoil which one is mine, because that’s the idea… You only find out which artist made which work after you purchased it.
142 artists, 400 works…. all available for only 100 euros each.
Go grab em’ while you can!

A limited edition print of my soft but nasty AK47 photo will be there, I hope you will too!
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!

It was a busy, busy week in Amsterdam. The presentation of the games in the live radio show was quite successful. Video documentation was made, also quite successfully. I’m a happy camper!
More material will be online soon.

Today’s the first day I’m an artist-in-residence of De Torenkamer, a studio of Dutch radio show Opium op 4, where every week a new artist is invited over to make a new work or study a subject for five days.
Today I started working on a new project called ‘Funny Games’ (yes, named after the Austrian horror movie), where I want to make an x-amount of small games where abnormal ‘game behaviour’ is encouraged. This Friday some of the games (if I manage to invent more than one successful game, otherwise it will be just one), will be presented and tested on live radio during the evening.
Here are some images of the game I’ve worked on today:
The working title of this game is: 1. Boast and Trust, and the game can be played with 3 to 6 players. It’s all about collecting matching pieces by exchanging them with other players, and most of all preventing other players collect matching sets as well. Anything goes, there are no rules but one: it’s not allowed to say out loud what pieces you’ve received after exchanging them with a fellow player. Next to that, everything is allowed. Lying, scamming, making terrible deals, etc. And best: all this has to happen in as little time as possible, preferably 5 or 10 minutes. The first player to collect a matching set of five, wins the game. The blank parts you see in the picture above are just there to piss people off, they’re only used for exchanging pieces in the game, you won’t win if you collect five of those…
As you can see, this first ‘funny game’ is made to bring out the best in people.

Opening: 4th of April, 17:00hr.
DE KIJKDOOS is proud to host solo exhibition Rogier by Joyce Overheul.
DE KIJKDOOS COMMENT by Suzie Herman & Janneke van der Vloed.
Rogier shared so much about himself online that it was possible to base a novel on it.
DE KIJKDOOS would be pleased to see you at the opening on Friday 4th April 2014 at 5pm till 7pm.
Reading out loud by Joyce Overheul at 6pm
The book will be available for a great price!
From the 4th of April until the 4th of May my project Rogier will be on view at De Kijkdoos, Amsterdam (NL). During the exhibition the entire novel I wrote about the 17-yo Twitter user will be displayed page by page, giving passersby the opportunity to read the entire thing.
Suzie Herman and Janneke van der Vloed will write a commenting text about the project that will be on display at the exhibition site as well.
Opening: 4th of April, 17:00hr.

From the 7th of the 11th of April I’ll be an artist in residence (kinda) at De Torenkamer (“the tower chamber”), a short period AIR program by Opium op 4 (a Dutch radio show) in a studio in Amsterdam.
For a week I’ll stay at a studio in Amsterdam and make something new, and every day between 23:00h and 24:00h a short radio interview will be held about my progress of that day. On the very last day the work I made will be presented somewhere outside the studio (can’t remember exactly where, atm).
