The website is now updated with documentation of the performance Temporary Country Life in Zomerpark.

I can also announce that I'm making a publication for the project together with Bram van den Berg! It will include newly written texts by Sietske Roorda and Maarten Zwiers as well as the diary of 'Zuidas Cowboy'. Coming out in 2019...

Happy to show my video work 'Walker, Shoe and Jacket' as part of the exhibition 'Vorm in Herhaling II' at Galerie Jansen & Kooy!
This is the first time that the video triptych I made during a residency in Lithuania is shown in The Netherlands. The exhibition is running until the 27th of October, open Thursday - Saturday.

I am thrilled to announce my public project 'Temporary Country Life'!
From 10 - 22 September I will be making performances and interventions in the temporary park Zomerpark in Amsterdam Zuidas. As 'Zuidas Cowboy', I will investigate the country culture of this temporary piece of countryside. End event with guest contributions on Saturday the 22nd of September, 3 - 6pm.

Many thanks to Gemeente Amsterdam Zuid.

Check out the online journey Lost in Nature. Inspired by the search of herman de vries' land art work 'Watergoed Kop van Overijssel'. Created together with Claudine Arendt and set up as a dialouge between our two domains.

The Slice has found a home! Very happy to announce that the 'Slice' sculpture has become part of the collection of LAPS - Research Institute for Art and Public Space in Amsterdam. Right now in storage, the sculpture will be on display in their new office at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy as of fall 2018.

The cross-section wood slice (1m diameter x 15 cm wide), originates from a poplar tree that stood at the Rietveld Academy site 1967- 2016, spanning the time from when the Rietveld Academy was first built until when the tree was cut down to make space for the new campus building. With its annual rings it is a material embodiment of compressed time and offers an alternative, non-verbal way of reading history.
