Omschrijving werk

My main design principles are collaboration, coexistence and colour. My work is always influenced by people, humans have always fascinated me. I am passionate about experimenting with different materials and new techniques, I can easily get lost in a world of making endless samples. I am a bit undefinable as I work in a lot of different fields and combine lots of different things. My work is very personal and I am primarily just creating my own utopia and exploring my fascinations. That is also why collaboration is so important to me as working with different people gives a whole other perspective.

2017 Pip expo: Yamuna Forzani & Joeri Woudstra On the 26th of January they invite you to their fashion show performance, a physical manifestation of acceptance, equality and freedom of sexuality.

2016 electriciteits fabriek The Hague My graduation show at the Electriciteits fabriek consisted of a performance in the exhibition that lasted over 3 hours. before and after each fashion show on the opening night. Then after the fashion show my work stayed there for another week. GROEP

2016 OpZicht at Stroom For almost 4 months my work was on display in Stroom as part of the OpZicht an installation of works including a hand tufted carpet and knitted pieces SOLO
2016 A Bad End Story - Berlin one tufted carpet and 4 knitted suits were worn in collaboration with Marijn Ottenhof's performance 'clown army' A small group of dancers takes turns in clowning around with the audience, following and imitating them using krump dance moves. Breaking with the idea of charming and seductive female dancing, krump dancing is a way to voice frustrations and anger without physically harming anyone, by punching the air, stamping the floor and grimacing. It shows parallels to ritual dances to drive out evil forces such as the meditterenean tarantella and african healing trance-like dance ceremonies. GROEP
2015 Maagdenhuis Amsterdam During the time students were occupying the Maagdenhuis at spui in Amsterdam a group of us from the KABK had an exhibition there for just one night, there was a total of about 34 students a mixture of fine arts, photography and fashion. With live performances. It was a really cool spontaneous collective thing. GROEP

2014 Exposed in the Prinsestraat at the end of my second year in KABK we had a group exhibition with my two other classmates in a shop on the Prinsestraat GROEP
