My show at the PeerIn gallery is part of Hoogtij #43, Friday the 4th of December from 17:00-23:00
Hoogtij is a cultural route along artist-initiatives, galleries and art platforms taking place in the centre of the Hague. You can sign up for a free tour at the Hoogtij website. (Tip: tour # 2 will take you to PeerIn)
PeerIn can be found on the Elandstraat 200 in the Hague. It will also be the last evening the show will be on view!
Currently on display for the month November: an installation that I created for the PeerIn Gallery in the Hague. Inspired by the window displays of shady real-estate offices, I used similar display strategies to sell the pedestrians of the Elandstraat architectural “investment opportunitys”. This ambiguous presentation hopefully has the passersby stop and wonder what kind of new “business” has popped up on their street this time.

A couple of years ago I made a little video that was set in Benidorm at night. Ever since I made a one-minute cut (the original was a 5 minute loop) this "mini" version of this video has been leading its own life. After being part of the One minute collection and catalogue "Number One the video will now be showed during the screening and exhibition "The One Minutes on Tour in Shanghai" at the Power station of Art in Shanghai.
I've got the honour to be part of the anual photo commision "De Kracht van Rotterdam". Twelve photographers are assigned to document one of the (twelve) area's that form the city of Rotterdam. The results are exhibited outdoors on billboards around the city in September 2014. Update: To see how/what/where, and any other adventures/progress/results - the weblog is the place to be! →
