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.
Back in Amsterdam from have spent six weeks in the artist in residency at Nida Art Colony, Lithuania, where I've produced new work and met new friends. Click here for an impression of the Open Studios presentation where I showed video work and digital prints.
EXCITED to take part of the artist-in-residency at Nida Art Colony in Lithuania! During December/January I will be making new research and work using the media facilities and Baltic landscape at Nida.
