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).
My plant (the one I made for MILK/This Art Fair) will be part of this exhibition. All works works will remain on view for two weeks.
‘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.

And last but not least, opening today is Fotoroute Den Helder. My work will be on view at Galerie Windkracht13 and some smaller works of mine are featured at the WinWin Kabinet of Kunsthal 45.

Please note the order’s totally random.

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 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
