Together with Jack Chen of Finesse Architecture, I will be teaching a 4-weeks course in China, at the Chinese Academy of Art, Hanzhou. I’m thrilled to be invited and will try to challenge the students. A great chance to teach in a different culture, and to learn from them just as much as they learn – hopefully – from me.
New collage works are on show during the month of October, in an exhibition of Tekenkabinet. Tekenkabinet (Drawing cabinet) is a traveling platform, promoting the act of drawing, and is organized by Manja van der Storm. The presentation takes place at Kalkmarkt 8, Amsterdam.
Sunday 10th of April I will be giving a lecture about my work during the Salon at De Boterhal in Hoorn. The Salon follows up on the exhibition ‘Ruimtelijk Vlak’, that is on show until the 1st of May. For Ruimtelijk Vlak I made a new installation. The show is a part of National Drawing Manifistation ‘Drawing Front’, taking drawing as a starting point and showing different perspectives on drawing as a medium.
On the 5th of September the book ‘Veldwerk’ is presented. This book shows all the works that have been part of the anniversary exhibition ‘Veldwerk – 25 Years of Kunstvereniging Diepenheim’. The work ‘Survival of the fittest’ is published in this book.
To celebrate this happy fact, an anniversary exhibition is planned, where all artist that have shown work in the Kunstvereniging until now, are invited to participate with a small work on paper. I participate with the work ‘Survival of the fittest’, that I made for this exhibition.
Saterday 27th of June this exhibition will be opened in Drawing Centre Diepenheim by Arnoud Odding, director of Rijksmuseum Twenthe at 16.30h. Before that the Summer exhibition in Kunstvereniging Diepenheim starts. You are welcome there from 15.00h. Enjoy!
‘Library of the Future’
Deventer will have a new library. 3 artists and 3 designers have been asked to give their vision on ‘the library of the future’.
My work focusses on the printed book versus ‘the cloud’. More and more information comes to us, via all kinds of screens. Everyone can upload, everyone can share. The cloud of information will grow, but I speak for the book and it’s values of it’s physical presence. The weight, the smell, notes in the margin, the memory of when you received it and where you took it to read. Communication is in development, non-stop, but the book has proved to be of importance, till now, and hopefully in the future, as a strong contra weight of the cloud. In the sculpture, the books are poured in concrete, and literally balances out the bookshelf.
Other participants are: Jean Klare, Bas Kools, and architects Ellen Schild, Fulco Treffers and Daniël Venneman.
The exhibition is open on Saterdays, from 13.00h until 16.00h, at the Stromarkt in Deventer. Location; Bibliotheek van Nieuwsgierigheid (Library of Curiosity)
