‘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.

“Kunst ist immer abhängig vom Raum, in dem sie gezeigt wird. Mit der Installation eines Werkes steht man vor der Herausforderung, die Gegebenheiten des Raumes zu nutzen und sich gleichzeitig dagegen zu behaupten. Ten Bosch hat diese beiden Notwendigkeiten zu einer Einheit verbunden und überlässt dem Betrachterauge die Entscheidung über die Gewichtung zwischen Kunst und Raum.” – Annika von Taube at Blitzkunst.wordpress.de

I am pleased to present my first solo show at Galerie Gilla Lörcher in Berlin under the name Cool Calm Collected. The show presents works made during my first two years in Berlin.
The show is on display from March 19 – April 22 2016, Pohlstraße 73 , 10785 Berlin.
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.
Friday the 27th of june Gallery Frank Taal opened ‘Figure That’. In this group exhibition the gallery reflects on itself by showing all the artists they represent. For this event I was invited to act as a guest artists within the show. I presented new work in the series ‘Remains/Stolen footage (after AA Bronson)’. Continue Reading →
During the Kunstweekend Charlois Jeroen Bosch curated an exhibition called ‘Half empty’. In an old officebuilding in the south of Rotterdam he brought together a group of artists that create work with a high level of abstractness in it. I was invited to be part of this show.
The project ‘If paradise is half as nice 2’ was presented in Berlin a week after the presentation in Leipzig. The location was the exhibition space of Atelierhof Kreuzberg, a completely different surrounding then the original location in Leipzig and therefor a totally other presentation, based on the same works.
‘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.
A solo show at Upominki Rotterdam resulted in ‘I don’t quit my daytime job’. The show presented the first works of the ‘Remains/Stolen Footage’-series. The title refers to the background of the materials used for the works which come from jobs I do to maintain my income.
For the ‘Grensloos Kunstverkennen’ art-route at Ijhorst/De Wijk I created the work ‘This is it’. In the garden of a beautiful old farm I used a dead tree-trunk to create a work that fitted the exhibition and its surroundings. The tree was overgrown with ivy, which made it look like a sort of ancient greek pillar. The ‘gallery’ built around the tree was made of wood contributed by a farmer from the area and was completely white from the inside.
