Solo presentation at Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair
The new mobile Photographic Hammer at BredaPhoto
In May 2016 my proposal ‘The Photographic Hammer’ won the competition ‘Design a camera obscura’ of BLASt (Breda Landscape, Architecture and city planning) and BredaPhoto International Photo Festival. The new mobile camera obscura can make paper prints and photographical ceramic reliefs. I’ll be presenting my brand new camera obscura with the Photographic Hammer at BredaPhoto festival.
During the following days (10:00-17:00h) I’ll be making a photographic work by exposing on wet clay:
Exhibition ‘The Photographic Ceramic Relief’ at Galerie de Witte Voet
From 10 September until 22 October my solo exhibition ‘The Photographic Ceramic Relief’ will be on show at Galerie de Witte Voet. The exhibition aims to introduce the viewer to the intensive four-year long period of transitioning my work from photography into ceramics.
Works in the exhibition are made possible by the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL and Stokroos Foundation
Project ‘Triumph of the Garden’ at Shiryaevo Biennale, Samara, Russia
I intend to investigate dacha gardening as an aspect of Russian society that operates outside the financial system and in the process of doing so avoids the alienation of modern day consumers with nature. I will convert a dacha into a camera obscura by mounting a lens in the wall. In front of the lens, bathing in sunlight, a cabbage from the garden will be placed. Inside the projection of the cabbage is engraved in a surface of wet Volga clay using my invention the ‘Photographic Hammer’.
This project has been made possible by the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL and the European Cultural Foundation
