In June my latest animation RAS (Earthfall) will be shown in the competition program and beamed into your living rooms!

Thank you so much to the jury of Kortfilmfestivalen Grimstad for the selection of Ras and continuing the festival !
And congratulations to producer Turid Rogne and Aldeles!

Lantic Scapes Haarlem

Now in de Vishal in Haarlem!
Lantic Scapes, an exhibition of Bethany de Forest, Ellen de Vries and Simone Hooymans.
The artists Bethany de Forest, Simone Hooymans and Ellen de Vries share their fascination for landscapes and create their own, surreal, sometimes idealistic versions of this. Their worlds take on a photographic and cinematic form through the use of analog / lo-fi techniques, combined with modern computer techniques.

From 8. November until 9 December 2019.
De Vishal is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 – 17:00



I am happy to announce that my animation RAS is selected for Statens Høstutstillingen 2019 in Oslo!
My work has been selected out of 2344 submitters this year!

This important annual State exhibition nr. 132,  takes place from 7. september – 13. oktober at Kunstnerhus in OSLO.
I am also part of satellitt I Valnesfjord, which is a collaboration for a public space art project between Høstutstillingen and Valnesfjord skole i Fauske kommune.

OOH Urban Video art festival Kosovo

OOH is an urban, public video art festival, executed outside of the context of traditional art venues.The festival will present international video art of high artistic quality through public space projections in the city of Gjilan, Kosovo.
The work of each artist will be presented non-stop during an entire week. Each week will be completed by a live or online artist talk.
One of the main goals of OOH is creating a platform which gives time and opportunity to a broad audience to interact with the phenomenon of video art. The viewers will be able to absorb the video art and subsequently relate it to their personal live and their society.
The relationship between the content and audience, what the art is saying and to whom, is just as important if not more important than its physical location.

Selected animations:
All That Space Between Us
Meet Me There – Meet Me Then
Rett Ned

OOH is a cooperation between Varg e Vi Contemporary Art Center and curator Maureen Bachaus (NL).
