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.

My work @ Patty Morgan

I finally extended my online existence to the platform of Patty Morgan.

At this moment I have one fucking follower, #itssomething. Anyway, if you’re on Patty Morgan, feel free to follow me!

I’ll be uploading lots of photos of my work on that profile, it definitely looks more appealing than uploading things on the pay-me-or-no-one-sees-your-posts-Facebook…

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!

Special thanks goes to: Jowi Kemper, Heekyung Ryu, Giovanni Maisto Ferreira, Michiel Tollig, Mandy Chaigneau, Ilona Schipper, Marisa Conde, Vincent Baeza Parra, Ken Bridgen, Jolanda Jansen, Sarah Atzori, Alessandro, Herwin Zweers

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. 

Free entrance

Rogier @ Design My Privacy, MOTI Museum of the Image, Breda (NL)

On view until the 25th of January!

That’s plenty of time to go read the book at the museum, lol.

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!

Here we go!

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

Coming up: UtrechtDownUnder in a prison!

001-klein

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.

Last weekend’s things… SWOOF x DPRK lamp at NEST HC!

IMG_20150314_153627

Last weekend was the presentation of the SWOOF x DPRK lamp by Yudo Design!

Yudo Design has created an interactive led table lamp which you can operate with hand movements. They often collaborate with artists and designers to create new skins, the replaceable outer part of the lamp, so lamp owners can easily change the appearance of their lamps themselves. This weekend the lamp will also be on display (and for sale) at NEST at the Hoog Catharijne shopping mall, at the Seats2Meet venue.

Here’s a video on how the SWOOF design works:

Upcoming: Exhibition “De Belofte Ingelost”

IMG_20150116_192148

Opening on the 7th of February: the anniversary edition of De Belofte (“the promise”) exhibition series at Kunstliefde. This year the De Belofte-programme exists for 10 years and this exhibition shows you previous participants of the last 10 years, including meeee! Yoohoo!

There’s an opening party on the 8th of February starting at 16:00hr at Kunstliefde. The exhibition will be opened by Frank Koolen, artist and tutor at the Utrecht School of the Arts, who lectured many of the participating artists (again, including meeee).

At this exhibition the video I made while I was in the DPRK will be shown, together with some souvenirs, an essay/travel journal-thingy I wrote for this exhibition and a podcast describing all the things I was not allowed to capture on video.

Hope to see you there!! It’s going to be a great exhibition.

11th December: Pecha Kucha Night @ Het Huis, Utrecht

DPRK Pyongyang view from the Grand People's Study House

Upcoming Thursday I’ll be having a chat about the DPRK project at Pecha Kucha Night at Het Huis, Utrecht!

The idea of a Pecha Kucha presentation is that you have 20 images and only talk for 20sec about each of them, so I tweaked the idea a bit and I’m going to show you 20 short clips of 20sec each of the video I made when I was in North Korea!

Above you can see a film still of one of the shots that will be included in the presentation. 🙂

Check out the Pecha Kucha website over >here<, there’s also a Facebook event. In preparation to this presentation, the DPRK project page on my portfolio website will be updated tomorrow, so I’ll also drop a link over here once I’ve finished working on that.

Hope to see you on Thursday!!

The Big Draw Nijmegen 2014

Photo 09-09-14 15 38 45

This week I’m a participating artist at The Big Draw in Nijmegen (NL), a festival about drawing.

I’ll be drawing shit at two locations this week; today I made a small series of drawings at the Valkhof Museum, since the drawing over there had to be finished before the festival starts (which is tomorrow), and from tomorrow until Sunday I’ll draw something on the window of the Dromaai.

Today I made some drawings about my trip to the DPRK. I still have to take decent photos, so until that point you’ll have to look at my wacky phone photos…

DPRK: 3 film stills to still your hunger

DPRK Childrens' Palace

 

DPRK A monument in Wonsan

 

DPRK Pyongyang view from the Grand People's Study House

I started working on editing the videos I shot in the DPRK for my new video installation. Here are 3 film stills of scenes I really like.

And look at how clean and neat Pyongyang looks in the bottom still! North Korea may have a terrible reputation internationally, but in the centre of Pyongyang everything was ridiculously clean and looked really, really nice…

Back from the DPRK! Now it’s time for a new project

pyongyang

Hey y’all! I’m back from the DPRK! Safe and sound.

I can say it was the most peculiar trip I ever went on…!
One of the most noticeable things: the food we got on the Air Koryo plane from Beijing to Pyongyang was a hamburger, lol.

I can also say I was there for a reason: I was there to shot new footage for a new video installation project! More about that next week, but for now, above you can see Pyongyang at night. Below you can see a huge drawing I just started, Pyongyang school girls, it’s going to be approx. 300x150cm in size.

I’m not dead yet…

…I’m just REALLY busy. Hence it’s a bit quiet over here.

I moved in my new studio in Utrecht last week, and I’m still working on moving all my stuff to my new work space. Or work spaces, actually, since my new studio has 3 separate rooms in total.

It’s fucking huge.

Some pictures (of course, they’re panorama shots so the walls look a bit funky):

Love my new mono pod!

Sirui monopod from Fotogrijpink.nl

I’m a sucker for gadgets. That said, it was only a question of time before I got myself a decent mono pod. The one I used before came from some crappy eBay store and was a bit too large to drag around all the time (didn’t fit in any bag or suitcase properly), so that kinda sucked ass…

Foto Grijpink, located in Nijmegen, NL has helped me out with my photography gear before (for instance with the 24H project) and they were happy to help my out on today’s mono pod quest as well! Thanks again guys for your support!

This fancy carbon mono pod is a Sirui P-326 by the way, and it’s really, really light weight (only 400 grams), and it fits in even my smaller backpacks without any problems. Can’t wait to use this baby for picture taking or filming! (:

The book about Rogier now has its own ISBN

20140526-235050-85850352.jpg

…and is officially registered as a publication from now on!
So funny, I also had to register as an official publisher before I could request an ISBN.

Click >here< to read more about the Rogier project on my portfolio website.

You can still order your very own copy of the book for only €15,-. Feel free to contact me of you’re interested in obtaining one.

New work online: Walther Plush5

Walther Plush5

New work online: a photo of one of my Walther Plush5’s with a model.

Walther Plush5 is a site specific work I made for Festival de Basis, Soesterberg (NL) in 2013. It’s a crochet replica of one of the current handguns of the Dutch police force, on a 1:1 scale.

The theme of the entire festival was ‘war and peace’, hence the toy guns….

Walther Plush5 has an edition of five. Click >here< to go to the project’s webpage on my portfolio website. (link opens in a new window)

Nice: found a blog post about my project ‘Rogier’

R-2

Yes, I’m calling the then 17-year-old Rogier a project now. The former title in Dutch wasn’t really working for me anymore. ‘De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier’, similar to the title of the book, didn’t really do the trick on my website anymore.

I was doing a google search via Safari (where I’m not logged in on any Google- or other account) and came across this blog post by Irene about my project:

http://blogs.klaretaal.com/irene/2013/08/28/hou-het-droog-rogier/

I like it! She really understood the project from what I read in the blog post, which is always nice. I haven’t come across hateful blog posts yet, by the way (but lots of Tweets with mild threats).

(Unfortunately for the non-Dutch readers, the blog post is in Dutch only)

New exhibitions coming up

Thank nothing-up-there that my agenda isn’t empty! I’m always afraid of the big ol’ scary empty agenda, large white sheets filled with…. absolutely nothing. *insert horror sound over here, please*

DSC_7609

Above: the installation at CC: Casco Concreet

12th of January – 2nd of February: CC: Casco Concreet, Utrecht, The Netherlands

So, first of all there’s still a work of mine on view at CC: Casco Concreet in Utrecht. That will run until the 2nd of February, so if you haven’t been there yet, make sure you go to Utrecht asap! (At least on a Wednesday or Sunday, since the exhibition space is open those two days.) The work that’s on view there are the documentation videos of the IT project. Next Wednesday I’ll be there myself too, from 15:30 until 19:00h. There you can also see one of the most pretty chairs in the world, the vintage Gispen chair I inherited from my grandmother.

31st of January-2nd of February: TWK #4, Utrecht, The Netherlands

I’ve donated some parts of works and documentation to the Tijdelijke KunstWinkel #4 in Utrecht (temporary art store). In this pop up art store you can buy art for only 10 euros, and best of it all: all of that 10 euros will go to charity! This year we’re raising money for clean drinking water in Cameroon, the Manganjo project of LiveBuild.

Some websites you might want to check out: http://www.tijdelijkekunstwinkel.nl/ and http://www.livebuild.org/projects/manganjo/

I won’t tell you yet which of my works will be available for purchase, that’s a surprise! (Or go to the temporary art store, of course!)

20th of February-13th of April: Kunstenlab, Deventer, The Netherlands

The Rogier project will be on view here. Yoohoo! The date of the opening isn’t known yet, but as soon as I’ve got more info, I’ll let you know.

27th-30th of March: u topia, Collectief Derde Wal, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

For this exhibition I’m developing at least 1 project concept, and hopefully I’ll be able to finish a new documentary-style video for the show itself too. I still don’t feel like sharing too much about these two new things, but as you can already guess, it will have something to do with the theme ‘utopia’.

So, as you can see there are quite some things coming up…. Yay, no empty agenda!

 

Update (26/01): My work has also been selected for the Unnoticed Art Festival. Yoohoo!
