From the 11th of March until the 28th of May, my project 1000 CRANES will be part of the exhibition Aanstormend talent bij MIJ (upcoming talent bij MIJ/”ME”) at Museum IJsselstein, located in (well duh) IJsselstein, The Netherlands.
For the Dutchies among you, here’s some more info about the opening and exhibition in general: http://www.museumijsselstein.nl/activiteiten/uitnodiging-opening-aanstormend-talent-bij-mij
On the 30th of April and 6th of May I will host a workshop about the Japanese tradition of Senbazuru and on the 18th of May there will be an artist talk (incl me of course) about the entire project.
More info about this project can be found on my website: http://joyceoverheul.com/works/cranes.html
Hope to see you there!
As part of the BYOB and Dutch Film Festival, an excerpt of my 1000 CRANES performance video is currently on view at Hutspot, Utrecht!
Upcoming Thursday the annual BYOB will be held in Utrecht at the old post office at Neude square, I will be showing a new work that evening. Hope to see you there!
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.

Or drop by at Galerie Sanaa, Utrecht on Wednesdays ’til Sundays from 12 until 18hr!
I’m currently working on a new performance piece for the ‘Diep Gaan’ exhibition, organized by LUCY in de lucht (click here to go to their website). I was wondering, since the theme of the exhibition is ‘going deep’, how it would feel to commit myself to something quite enduring, and probably also very boring from time to time. I’ve never done something like that before. (No, knitting a sweater doesn’t count.)
So that’s why I decided I’m going to fold 1000 origami cranes during the Diep Gaan exhibition at Galerie Sanaa (Utrecht, NL), which will be opening on Sunday the 7th of July!
Above you can see a photo of an unfolded crane, one of the first cranes I ever made, and below’s the logo of the exhibition project:
The exhibtion project is quite huge: there will be lectures, talk shows, live performances and film screenings next to the exhibition at Galerie Sanaa! Hope to see you there!
