My project Rogier (De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier / Three months in the life of Rogier) will be on view at Museum Meermanno, as part of the exhibition ‘De kunst van lezen. Van William Kentridge tot Wikipedia’/The art of reading. From William Kentridge to Wikipedia.
Opening tomorrow: the exhibition VijandSchap at Fort Maarsseveen (near Utrecht, NL).
Over there I will present a new research project on lying, liespotting and designing your truth. Hope to see you there, the opening starts tomorrow at 17hr sharp! The exhibition will run during opening hours of the venue until the 14th of May.

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!
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.

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

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.

Reading out loud by Joyce Overheul at 6pm

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).

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.
