So, the Diep Gaan exhibition ended well, with an artist talk (including me) on the 5th of July. It was incredibly hot at the gallery, at least half of the people (including me) looked like a sweaty mess, lol!

I finished the last of my 1000 cranes on Thursday the 2nd. For all photos of all (yes, all) cranes, please view my instagram account @joyce1000cranes.

Also, the exhibition at Artspace Flipside ended on the 12th of July. Decent photos of the satin Kalashnikov I made will be online on my portfolio website soon!

Meanwhile in the studio….

…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.
