Bunker Exposities #35 Video Programme, The Hague

20180708_20113120180708_20121320180708_192145

http://bunkerexposities.nl/nu-in-de-bunker/

From 24th June – 8th July 2018, open every day between 12.00h – 20.00h.

This exhibition is meant to give an idea of the variety of aspects in video and film. Three works include DPRK, a monumental documentary by Joyce Overheul made during her trip to North Korea, Treelogy, a series of interventions by Nuni Weisz and a collection of Encounters by Anita Horváth. All artists have a different cultural/artistic background and use the camera in a completely different manner.
On Sunday 8th of July there will be a “finissage” with an artists’ gathering.

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

Upcoming: Exhibition “De Belofte Ingelost”

IMG_20150116_192148

Opening on the 7th of February: the anniversary edition of De Belofte (“the promise”) exhibition series at Kunstliefde. This year the De Belofte-programme exists for 10 years and this exhibition shows you previous participants of the last 10 years, including meeee! Yoohoo!

There’s an opening party on the 8th of February starting at 16:00hr at Kunstliefde. The exhibition will be opened by Frank Koolen, artist and tutor at the Utrecht School of the Arts, who lectured many of the participating artists (again, including meeee).

At this exhibition the video I made while I was in the DPRK will be shown, together with some souvenirs, an essay/travel journal-thingy I wrote for this exhibition and a podcast describing all the things I was not allowed to capture on video.

Hope to see you there!! It’s going to be a great exhibition.

11th December: Pecha Kucha Night @ Het Huis, Utrecht

DPRK Pyongyang view from the Grand People's Study House

Upcoming Thursday I’ll be having a chat about the DPRK project at Pecha Kucha Night at Het Huis, Utrecht!

The idea of a Pecha Kucha presentation is that you have 20 images and only talk for 20sec about each of them, so I tweaked the idea a bit and I’m going to show you 20 short clips of 20sec each of the video I made when I was in North Korea!

Above you can see a film still of one of the shots that will be included in the presentation. 🙂

Check out the Pecha Kucha website over >here<, there’s also a Facebook event. In preparation to this presentation, the DPRK project page on my portfolio website will be updated tomorrow, so I’ll also drop a link over here once I’ve finished working on that.

Hope to see you on Thursday!!

DPRK: 3 film stills to still your hunger

DPRK Pyongyang view from the Grand People's Study House

I started working on editing the videos I shot in the DPRK for my new video installation. Here are 3 film stills of scenes I really like.

And look at how clean and neat Pyongyang looks in the bottom still! North Korea may have a terrible reputation internationally, but in the centre of Pyongyang everything was ridiculously clean and looked really, really nice…

Back from the DPRK! Now it’s time for a new project

pyongyang

Hey y’all! I’m back from the DPRK! Safe and sound.

I can say it was the most peculiar trip I ever went on…!
One of the most noticeable things: the food we got on the Air Koryo plane from Beijing to Pyongyang was a hamburger, lol.

I can also say I was there for a reason: I was there to shot new footage for a new video installation project! More about that next week, but for now, above you can see Pyongyang at night. Below you can see a huge drawing I just started, Pyongyang school girls, it’s going to be approx. 300x150cm in size.
