I’m a terrible person not updating this blog very often…. but I’m giving it my best shot, again. But hey, here’s some great news! This Saturday, tomorrow!, on the 7th of September my solo show Sounds Familiar will open at Lauwer gallery in The Hague, NL!!
With works I made during my stay at the Aria Residency in Iran, works I made as a follow-up of my stay in Iran, some soft weapons and some naked bums. Plenty of art for all!
Yes, I’ve finished a new tapestry! Based on one of the street photos I took during my visit to Tehran, Iran.
The tapestry and photos from a brand new photo series (‘Men of Quality’) will be on view until the 26th of May. Below you can also see the banner I made in Iran which was used to take photos on the streets with passersby. The banner is made entirely by hand, its letters exist out of beadwork. All fabrics used for the banner were purchased in Tehran, Iran.
It’s been awfully quiet on this blog. But don’t worry, I haven’t died, my work hasn’t died, everything and everyone is okay. (:
Something I could not really post up front about is me being an artist in residence at the Aria Residency, as part of the Aria Gallery in Tehran, Iran. I stayed at the research residency site for four weeks in January 2019. An artist talk and exhibition followed, and more than a hundred people visited my open studio exhibition event at the end of my stay.
More info about the residency can be found here: aria-residency.com
Some photos of the open studio can be found here: http://aria-residency.com/open-studio-joyce-overheul/
More info about the works I made over there will be online soon, as soon as I’ve updated my website. I also continue in The Netherlands to make more works as a follow-up on the residency, more about that will be online too as soon as I’ve finished those projects.
