Omschrijving werk

I am a virtual nomad, collector, and I take humour very seriously. I see a screen as a flat surface which subconsciously also flattens our experience of the daily material world around us. However, what we see on a screen suggest a multilayered space that we can relate to in physical space. I deal with concepts of re-contextualizing this space, appropriating images and essentially making our immaterial experience of the Internet, material. By turning our 'digital lives' into tangible forms, I create surreal responses to our online activity – what do actions like a 'sharing' or 'searching' look like? And how do we experience the essence of objects online? Through playful interactive installations, video and photography, I make visual illustrations, giving the Information age and Internet phenomenon’s a new form. In this way mirroring our generations, what I like to call, short-term nostalgia.

2015 Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten, Den Haag GROEP
2015 Melkweg Gallery, Amsterdam Together with my fellow photography graduate students of the Royal Academy of Art. 'Introducing 'DEAR...': The Printfactory' we organized and put together is a pop-up printsale at the Melkweg gallery in Amsterdam. The concept was selling one photo per person and having a print-on-demand set up in the gallery itself. GROEP
2015 de Spanjaardshof, Den Haag This exhibition was organised by the artists who share the old building of Spanjaardshof in the Hague. The idea of the exhibition was to open their studios to the public but at the same time invite young artists to show their work. Therefore a mix of the old and the young. Within this exhibition, I showed a preview of my end exam project, 'Did you mean: anything else.' GROEP
2014 Museum voor Communicatie, Den Haag SOLO
2013 NEST, Den Haag As a duo together with Lynne Brouwer, we were chosen to participate in the ‘One Nest Stand’ - a one evening pop-up group exhibition in a fine art gallery Nest. After two months of guidance by the curator and three visual artists, we developed a project consisting of three parts – a dia slideshow plus a framed print, a publication and an interactive installation. With the title of the exhibition ‘Me, Myself and I’, Lynne and I made a project based on out amazement which focuses on the art world , and more specifically to the most common forms of presentation; why they have value and status? Through our critical attitude to turn a positive, almost naive perspective as GROEP
