I am excited! Santa came with this exotic post today and gave me my own copy of the Korean design and lifestyle magazine where I have been interviewed for 2 months ago! (only the unboxing itself was already fun!)
The article is following the exhibition ´Of Nature´ where I was part of in 2018 at the Suwon iPark Museum of Art in South Korea. Thank you curator Hyun Jin Park and HyunJu Yu !
My animation Meet Me There – Meet Me Then with music of Terje Isungset will be shown at the group exhibition: “Deus Ex Terra” at the CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium Lavagna, Italy.
12 – 29 December 2019
The Art Observatorium Jizaino present “Deus Ex Terra”, a new group exhibition dedicated to environmentalism aimed to the research of modus vivendi that are balanced with nature, beyond the simple denounce of its destruction, and in sync with the cosmos.
The human species successfully existed for millions years in harmony with nature, never destroying the environment as it is doing since just barely more than one century: ancient civilisations did understood the universe even not launching rockets to the Moon, breaking the atom, bending life or bleed dry the depths of the earth. The potentiality of imagination is sufficient to satisfy the urge to understand, because all that satiates the mind is already in ourselves and all that fulfills the body is already in the nature.

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 invited by the curator of the National gallery in Skopje Macedonia, Ana Frangovska, for a 10 days new media art residency at the Art Colony in Galichnik.

I feel so lucky!
Happy to announce that my film ‘All that Space Between Us’ (with music from Mari Kvien Brunvoll) has been selected among hundreds of submissions from all over the world to compete during the juried show of the 2019 Art Quake Kyoto !!!

Date: 27 August until the first of September!
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.
All That Space Between Us
Meet Me There – Meet Me Then
OOH is a cooperation between Varg e Vi Contemporary Art Center and curator Maureen Bachaus (NL).
