Hoogtij Festival - Groede
On Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th, the Hoogtij Festival will take place in Groede, Zeeland. A festival with a program that has room for traditional as well as daringly innovative performances - and that has also created ample space for the visual arts.
Twelve visual artists, of which I am one, have been invited to create new works, taking inspiration from two poems by two Groede-based poets: Dinie Sophie Fintelman and Tijs van Bragt. These new works can be seen during the festival in the studio of visual artist Theo Jordans. The address: Schuitvlotstraat 28 (Please click on the address, Google Maps will then open.)
The works will be displayed in local artist Theo Jordans' studio, and replicas of these works will also be shown outside, where they form a route along the Boulevard van de Verbeelding (The Boulevard Of Imagination).
The other participating artists: Iris v’t Bosch, Emelien Dieleman, Arjelien van Dijke, Theo Jordans, Wilma van der Lee, Jozef van Mierlo, Ramon de Nennie, Frank Peters, Nanda Raemansky, Edwin de Smet en Peter Verdurmen.
The exhibition will be open to visitors during festival hours. For more information about the music programme, please visit the festival website: www.hoogtijfestival.nl .
I Nearly Flew! - Huis der Zotheid, Rotterdam
In February 2020 Huis Der Zotheid in Rotterdam showed a selection of my dream inspired drawings .
October 2019: De Veste Verlicht - Goes
Four embroidery works from the series "The Anatomy of Angels" were shown during the Veste Verlicht festival in Goes. You could see my work in the window of the bookstore De Koperen Tuin; two peep boxes were displayed inside the shop.
September/October 2019: Art Kattendijke
Art Kattendijke is an art festival in Kattendijke, The Netherlands.
2019 was the third edition of this event and showcased the work of about thirty artists, both locally and regionally.
This edition was different because the works of all participating artists had become integrated in an enormous cardboard installation, a "gesammtkunstwerk" created by Luk Sponselee and Werner Klompen.
"May I draw your dream?"
I asked this question to every visitor during the Eindeloos Eiland Festival in Noord-Beveland, the Netherlands, in 2019.
I would make a drawing from a visitor's dream, or if they didn't feel like it, I would sketch their portrait or make a coloring picture.
