Modellenfabriek

In the last three months I have worked industriously on a project where I make one experiment every week, starting in the form of a model. This series will soon be presented in the solo exhibition 'Modellenfabriek' (Model factory) at Expo Bart (Nijmegen). Ideas are evolving and taking shape in various media such as kinetic sculptures, spatial interventions and also in film. The starting point of the exhibition is the process of working in series. This method is related to my project ‘Every Day One Video’ (see link) where I use the time frame to stimulate the experiment. There is no predetermined formal outcome for any of the works, because the project is focused on the process and the search itself. The central position of the experiment means that ‘failures’ come to play a leading role.

While the exhibition is ongoing my goal is to further shape the project and therefore I continue to work ‘in residence’ on site, for the duration of four weeks. We – the gallery and me – will do our best to make this wild series into a walk-through-able exhibition (Beware! enter at your own risk).

Opening hours

The exhibition will open on 12 March and will run until 28 June. Close to the end of this show the gallery will host a special event with a guided tour and a film program with the Dutch filmmaker and artist Douwe Dijkstra. Expo Bart is open from Thursday to Sunday, 12:00–17:00.

Call for support

Most of the works in this series are experiments (involving kinetic methods and spatial interventions), others have turned into freestanding sculptures. Many of the models contain seeds for further development. In particular, I would like to to turn one small-scale model into a larger installation. In order to raise funds for this undertaking I am putting the model up for pre-sale.

SETUP.04 – Collectie De Groen Arnhem
25/08/2019 until summer 2020

From the start of 2019 until now I worked on a commissioned installation for the Collection De Groen in Arnhem. This site-specific work will be on display from the 25th of August in their upcoming exhibition ‘Setup’ (an exclusive show with selected work from their collection).

Note: when interested in visiting this exhibition, you will have to apply for a tour. These tours are popular and quickly sold out, but there are still dates available in September:
