I’m a bit off the radar this year. First I stayed in Iran for a month, then I went into hiding in a tent at Bergarde Galleries.

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?
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.
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).

‘ALLES KOMT GOED’
In the summer of 2016 Atelier014 first opened its doors in the Hardebollenstraat.
Something over 1.5 years, 26 exhibitions, many experiences and LOTS OF FUN later, we have to leave our space.
Unsure about our future, but certain of our goal: keep offering an experimental platform to artists in Utrecht.
To make our last month(s) count, we are transforming Atelier014 into an Artists Club.
A meeting place for artists and creatives to network and exchange ideas.
‘ALLES KOMT GOED’ is a mass exhibition in the Artists Club, showing work of over 30 artists. Let’s make some noise !
It’s about time.

>Here’s< a blog post by Geen woord Chinees bij about my project Rogier.
Some photos of the opening day of Project Rogier at Galerie ‘t Atrium in Zutphen (NL)!
The exhibition wil run until the 30th of October.
I made the local newspapers 3 times, wow!
Click on the read more tag for some more pictures!
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.
Here we go!
Special thanks goes to the Noorderlicht crew for making this exhibition look amazing, and the Mondriaan Fund for supporting my work!
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!
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

…headaches, backaches, any possible aches… long days, short nights…. (and ugly photoshop, as you can see above.)
But the new sculptural piece for the AK47 exhibition is ALMOST finished! Whoohoo!
It’s going to be an extended, kinda over the top version of the Walther Plush5 I made in 2013 for Festival de Basis in Soesterberg (NL). The Kalashnikov-themed exhibiition will be held at Artspace Flipside, Eindhoven (NL), opening on the 29th of May.
Yesterday I almost tore the entire thing apart when I started to stuff it, which brought me on the verge of a mental breakdown, but luckily it didn’t come this far… The pink satin is a real bitch to work with, but it’s going to look very pretty in the end! The rifle is stuffed with roasted sesame seeds (don’t ask..).
Sad, depressed rifle.
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.

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*
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.
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!
My participation in the CC: Casco Concreet exhbition is extended until the end of their show. The video documentation of a series of performances I realized for De Appel Arts Centre, as part of the exhibition ‘Three Artists Walk Into A Bar…’ will be screened until the 2nd of February.
The exhibition space will be opened for public every Wednesday and Sunday, from noon ’til 19hr.
CC: Casco Concreet
Europaplein 702, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Stay up to date about this exhbition and the other artists involved trough Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/CascoConcreet
My film 24H (formerly known as iFollow) will be on screen at the extra opening of CC: Casco Concreet (don’t know why they’re having an ‘extra opening, but hey.. I’m not complaining), from 11:00 ’til 20:00.
Here’s a trailer of the 24 hour real time film, where I followed a random person exactly for 1 day (without editing the film afterwards, or applying censorship during filming), to see what happens if someone starts to share everything (and can’t escape it either for one day).
CC: Casco Concreet, Europaplein 702, Utrecht, The Netherlands
The exhibition space is open for public from 11:00 ’til 20:00.

Unfortunately for the non-Dutchies, the text is available in Dutch only….
The Dr. Pill project is featured in this publication from BETER Consortium, ‘om in te nemen’. During a 3 month exhibition, visitors were examined if they experienced ‘real’ art in an other way than fake or ‘placebo’ art. Both the real and the placebo Dr. Pill-pills were part of the exhibition.
