An Ode to Rice, the Orchid and the Wasp

An Ode to Rice, the Orchid and the Wasp

Saturday October 5th I will be showing some new work at a solo show for The Orchid and the Wasp. An Ode to Rice will be a celebration of the food that’s often associated with lower income countries. This project is a first step in my new studies, questioning the Western gaze.

The Orchid and the Wasp is a project space by curator Maud Oonk initiated in 2015. She instigates exhibitions, encouraging artists to experiment with new ways of presenting by focusing on their making process.

You’re welcome from 15:00 – 19:00 at the NDSM Werf, T.T. Neveritaweg 59, 1033 WB Amsterdam. If you need any more information you can find it here.

Looking forward to seeing you at the opening!

Mixed Nuts; Tales of our own perception

Mixed Nuts; Tales of our own perception

A couple of weeks ago The House of Manawi Keke was born. An art platform for young artists, created by me and my friend Keke van de Ven. We wanted to create opportunities, offer feedback and help out our fellow young artists. MAMA, Rotterdam gave us the chance to put the house to work. After participating in their Summer Swap program, they gave us the opportunity to use their space for two weeks.

So without further ado, I’d like to present Mixed Nuts; Tales of our own perception. The exhibition will contain works of Jeanine Vloemans, Keke van de Ven, Marloes Vreeswijk and myself. Apart from exhibiting I will also be curating the show. Art events will take place through out our time. For more information, click here!

Workshop; The real and the Other (the impression of a home)

Workshop; The real and the Other (the impression of a home)

On May 11th, Arash Fakhim and I will host a workshop at gastatelier Leo XIII.

A home as an object, filled with an impression that is purely personal. How does one describe such a thing that merely exists in your own reality? We offer you the chance to experience the realities of the other.

By hosting a workshop that’s centered around objects that remind you of home. This way we try to overcome the distance between these realities to create an universal feeling. A feeling that will be translated into physical works.

This Workshop will have an additional performance

graduated at ArtEZ this Year.
