Yesterday I received a copy of the book Unnoticed Art, featuring an essay by Frans van Lent, and many descriptions of the performances performed at the festival itself.
The IT series of performances where part of the festival as well. In the book you can read a brief description on how to perform the work, and the written down experiences of two performers.
I really like the way the title is printed onto the cover of the book, as you can see in the pictures above.
Go to the >Unnoticed Art Festival website< to order a copy of the book.
…took place last weekend!
The location remained secret until the very last moment, but in the end the festival took place in the city of Haarlem, The Netherlands.
My IT performances were re-enacted at the festival by a group of performers.

I’m happy to announce my work has been selected for the Unnoticed Art Festival! Which work I’ll be showing still remains a secret.
Some info from the website:
“In the spring of 2014 222lodge will be organising a festival for Unnoticed Live Art.
The festival for Unnoticed Art balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, will probably remain unnoticed to bystanders.
The location and dates of the festival will remain secret. That way the passers-by will be accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.
After the festival a manifestation will be organised and a book will be published. This will of course be announced clearly.”
They’re still looking for volunteers, so if you want to help: please go to the website and send them an email! 🙂
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*

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
