Group show at Arti et Amicitiae from 14 March – 14 June 2020. This was a project in collaboration with artists Claudia Mulder and Robbert Weide. In the exhibition I presented my new video work ‘After a while it becomes hard and heavy’. Due to Covid-19 regulations some of the activities had to be cancelled.
ONGEMAKKELIJK / AWKWARD
About the gaping hole between what humans want and what the world has to offer
In a time when perfection is the norm and we are responsible for our own success, the issue of discomfort is more relevant than ever. While society often shuns discomfort, many artists embrace it: the moment between knowing and not knowing leaves room for being human.
