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.
During the ‘Verborgen Tuinen’ 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!
Diving in Deep is a short documentary work made by me and Lucie Grisey on a project I did in Douala. This project was part of SUD2010, a three-yearly event in Cameroon that deals with art in Public Space. My stay there was part of a residence-program by the Fonds BKVB.
For the ‘Grensloos Kunstverkennen’ art-route at Ijhorst/De Wijk I created the work ‘This is it’.

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.
