‘From scratch’ is a solo show and the first show to be shown in a new art space in Berlin called In the Rackroom. The show is the follow up on my show ‘Sweet nothing’ earlier this year at the Frank Taal Gallery in Rotterdam.
From the 6th of august till the 7th of september 2014 I spend my time working in Leipzig. Together with Willem Besselink, Pim Palsgraaf, Daan Botlek, Regina Kelaita and Bram Braam, I used an old empty factory building to make site specific works in order to present this during the ‘Tag für Industrie Kultur Leipzig’. Parallel to this presentation we had a small show at Post-Industriale as a teaser for our factory show as well.
Invited by the organisation of the Ampelhaus in Oranienbaum (Germany) I spent four weeks working at this unique location in the small village close to Dessau. This residency period ended with a participation with four of my works in the exhibition ‘Unter zwischen im Ampelhaus’, two new ones and two works that were created last year in Leipzig.
‘Out of the white cube (Remains/Stolen footage)’ is a series of work that came to existence during the ‘As paradise is half as nice’ project in Leipzig. The works are a follow up of previous works that I have made and have the same subtitle.
During the ‘Verborgen Tuinen 2013′ event, I created a closed hatch at the garden of a housing block in Charlois, Rotterdam. This hatch could be a way to pass to another space, basement, tunnel or whatever. But in the meantime it is also an exit from such a space to the garden. What it really is we will not know, because the hatch appears to be locked tight!
