Reflection

Our 50 minute film “Once We Get There” will be presented as an installation at The Abington Artcenter as part of the exhibition “Reflection”

OffCource @ Minerva

Students are invited to research one aspect of the art history: performance art in public space in a playful and participatory way. The research will be executed not from behind the desktop but by foot: literally by re-enacting historical performances in Groningen.

The City as a Performative Object

During 2016-2017 We do a research on “The City as Performative Object”. This investigation is based on our hypothesis that the city is created by move-act of the individual.

Gaan om te Zijn

English below /// In de film Gaan om te Zijn zien we een een wereld die het midden houdt tussen een bordkartonnen werkelijkheid en een digitaal geconstrueerde simulatie. Er is een stad, een stad in aanbouw, bomen van karton gevouwen, auto’s uit klei opgetrokken, gebouwen van papiermaché of juist opgebouwd uit een kwetsbaar aluminium raamwerk. […]

171007 Philadelphia revisited

In front of her cooking books, she saved the wrapper we left on the doorstep of all the houses on the day of the unveiling, in her kitchen. Three years after.

Fields Value

Fields Value is geïnspireerd door de oneindige artistieke en economische mogelijkheden van een gegeven budget. Het verkent de kracht van geld om visueel en duurzaam impact te hebben op het landschap. Het project wil deze impact zowel lokaal als globaal zo krachtig mogelijk inzetten. (nog niet gerealiseerd) English summary: The piece “Fields Value”  exists as […]

160517 – Vondelpark encounter

Last Tuesday we met poet Sjaak Kroes in the Vondelpark by chance. He was offering a “pay what you wish” poetry session, an opportunity not to be missed. We requested a poem having to do with the theme of our work. Please join us in savouring the result:

160309 – organizing stuff

Ik probeer een nieuwe manier van opruimen uit in de studio. Rustig midden tussen de spullen gaan staan en wachten tot één van hen, luid en duidelijk, tot mij spreekt: “Ik wil naar deze doos / la / map / vuilnisbak”. Zo vond ik een stapel opdrachtkaartjes die we jaren geleden maakten voor een workshop. […]

150104-Hear the Land and the Sea

The idea was simple: The humans ears are about 20 cm apart. How will our experience of the landscape change once we enlarge that distance to be 6 meters? Would this make us hear like a giant? What do we hear, when we listen to the sea and the land once we construct for ourselves […]

Rainy weather
