Dear D,
It was a pleasure to meet you, my time with you reminded me that we were near these, that made me feel calm, and in the mood of eating mussels. But jet during my stay, I felt as if I was interrupting you, I guess it was because you were carrying a lot of weight on your shoulders at the time. Our meeting was loaded with political conflict but that was not your fault, i admired how you stood tall between all of them, all the chaos that you where not part of. You provided network, connections to other places, your openness made it easy to project or imagine those other places. (not a lot of places are so generous) I hear from someone that birds liked to visit you before, I guess they still do, but they just shapeshifted somewhat. The reason why I’m writing you is because I wanted to apologise for leaving you so early, without really getting to know you. I guess I was afraid to get too close.

All the best and good luck to you,

There are no animals in this ground, that shows the soullessness character of this material. It’s like I'm meeting a very grey person, hoping to find something interesting to talk about. It is obvious that ground is not alive. I do still think it's nice to sit in the pit, with my eye height on the ground level. it's a nice place to Be, even though it is a bit lonely and empty. Camera is dead, have to charge again. Maybe I can still do something about the shape later.


Boterhammen Chow

Raw clay, straw, wood.

Group show with:

Gijsje Heemskerk, Eva Schalkwijk, Iriée Zamblé, Kim Wawer

‘Boterhammen Chow’ is a news report about a terrible incident at Cultuur BSO Monopole: almost all the bread is gone and there are only two or three slices left. In this broadcast, the reporter conducts interviews with victims of this unfortunate fact. They are all deeply touched. They are hungry, sad or in complete panic. What should they eat instead? They don’t want anything else!

But suddenly they find a slice of bread!

The moment of hope soon changes when they find out the slice of bread is dead. They decide to give it a proper funeral ceremony complete with flowers, speeches and the Dutch national anthem. After the ceremony, the news reporter gets hungry and eats the very last slice of bread. When the other people discover this, total panic takes over.
