Exhibition Forest Fairytales at CODA Museum

I was invited by curator Guido De Vries to take part in the (group) exhibition Forest Fairytales. I will be showing a new audiovisual installation. It is based on some 8mm film material I shot when creating Frondescence, but the outcome is quite different due to heavy (digital) processing.
Videoloop (B&W) + soundscape.

Opening: October 14 , 19:15
Runs from October 15 2011 - January 22 2012
CODA Museum, Vosselmanstraat 299, Apeldoorn, NL

More info about the exhibition and other participants here.

Message October 2011:

"Ocultos entre el Bosque" Exhibition at CBK Apeldoorn

Exihition runs from October 30 - November 20, 2010.

"The fashion collection of “Ocultos entre el bosque” is based on a surrealistic forest where there is a combination of man made environment and raw nature living within each other. Trees made out of steel and insects merged with mechanical pieces.
The garments are inspired by the armor of insects combined with the soft obscurity of a forest by nightfall."

The Incident Room #1.

I'm working on a new, short term project right now, called "The Incident Room". It's the first edition of a series of projects, where artist with different backgrounds from my region will meet and collaborate on a specific location, and create new work in a few weeks. Curator of this project is Patrick Mangnus. This first edition is set up in Cultuurplaats R10, Zwolle.

I'm working together with Harco Rutgers whom I've met before during the "Ontbos" exhibition he was curating.
The results are exciting! After brainstorming and testing We're creating an installation work where soundwaves are bending and guiding reflections of water. It works amazingly well and creates great images.
The other artists featured in this edition of the Incident Room are Sjoukje Gootjes and Jeroen Diepemaat, who are buidling a huge sculpture.

The exhibition is open January 29, 30, 31 and February 5, 6 and 7
13:00 - 17:00

On February 7, 15:30 , there will be a final event before closing up the project.

Location: R10, Rieteweg 10, Zwolle.
More info here and some pictures of the work in progress Harco uploaded here.


a video-document + bonus material of the installation has been uploaded and can be viewed on vimeo

Just a small update to let you know I've been working on a new 'forestial' project for a while now. I'm right in the middle of it (with a lot of other stuff going on as well) so It probably will take some time to finish.
