[ April – May 2016]
As part of the Macular Collective I'll be joining a research trip through the USA with several other audio-visual artists from the collective, with a performance and screening tour containing live audiovisual performances and experimental abstract films by the collective and a selection of other Dutch filmmakers. The showcase and presentations of our work will be presented in several institutes in Los Angeles - Human Resources, San Francisco - Gray Area Festival, Detroit, Pittsburgh - Wood Street Galleries, Baltimore and New York.
About Macular Collective:
Macular is a group of artists who share an interest in art, science, technology, and perception. Part nomadic lab, part research group, part braintrust, the collective is an ever evolving construct that manifests its creative output through installations, films, and live performances. Their work explores the behaviours that emerge from generative systems and processes, both natural and artificial, and is firmly focussed on establishing immersive sensory experiences.
Work by Macular members has been shown worldwide at festivals and institutions such as: Ars Electronica (Linz, AT), WRO International Media Art Biennale (Wroclaw, PL), Saatchi Gallery (London, GB), Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taichung, TW), Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam, NL) Woodstreet Galleries (Pittsburgh, US), AxS Festival (Pasadena, US), Lucida Space NCCA (Moskow, RU), Microwave International New Media Arts Festival (Hong Kong, CN), TodaysArt Festival (Tokyo, JP & The Hague, NL), DEAF Biennale (Rotterdam, NL), Sonic Acts Festival (Amsterdam, NL), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, NL), Exit Festival (Paris, FR), Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam, NL), V2_Institute (Rotterdam, NL), Kontraste Festival (Krems, AT), Sight&Sound Festival (Montréal, CA)
Solo Exhibition Radiant – TENT Rotterdam
I'm very happy to have had a solo exhibiton for 3.5 months at TENT Rotterdam, with multiple works all revolving around light, colour, transition, perception and the physical experience. Next to Solace, it contained 3 new works, which I’ve been working on for the last 2 years, featuring the video installation Liquid Solid (in collaboration with Joris Strijbos), Aurora and Radiant, a spatial kinetic light installation, specially made for the front room and the title for the exhibition, this light installation was on view 24-hours through the windows of TENT following the day and night rhythm.
