Ongemakkelijk / Awkward @ Arti et Amicitiae

Due to corona the exhibition (originally scheduled from 14 March to 11 April 2020) had to be closed. From 2 to 14 June 2020 the exhibition is open for visits. You have to make reservations in advance.

In this exhibition I present my new video work ‘After a while it becomes hard and heavy’. 

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.
