Thank you all who have been there, who took photos with the banner #menofquality, for participating in the performance during the opening night and for the wonderful conversations we’ve had about the works in the gallery stand!!
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!
Sunday the 28th of January I held an artist talk at Museum Meermanno, The Hague. My project on the 17yo Rogier has been part of their exhibition The Art of Reading (De kunst van het lezen).
Curator Paul van Capelleveen wrote a blog entry about the afternoon:
The Art of Reading is on view until the 4th of March this year.
Project Rogier, on view until the 4th of March.
My project Rogier (De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier / Three months in the life of Rogier) will be on view at Museum Meermanno, as part of the exhibition ‘De kunst van lezen. Van William Kentridge tot Wikipedia’/The art of reading. From William Kentridge to Wikipedia.
Last Saturday I finished shooting documentation material in The Hague for my website and a new performance video.
I’d like to thank all the amazing performers and their efforts, without them it would be impossible to make the documentation of the performance itself a success!!
The video of the performance will be shown for the first time at the BYOB (next Thursday in Utrecht, see this blog post).
For now, here’s a sneak peek!
Special thanks goes to: Jowi Kemper, Heekyung Ryu, Giovanni Maisto Ferreira, Michiel Tollig, Mandy Chaigneau, Ilona Schipper, Marisa Conde, Vincent Baeza Parra, Ken Bridgen, Jolanda Jansen, Sarah Atzori, Alessandro, Herwin Zweers
