about/artist statement

Language possessies resources which one has to sense as coming not only from within oneself, but from outside, from the Land itself, from the rivers, from the forests. And also from those persons and those cultures that existed in that landscape and have left their trace.’ (Wilson Harris *2)

I am an artist/researcher based in Kampen/Overijssel/The Netherlands.

I work in a variety of media, from walks to film to performances. My artworks have often a social critical layer that is performed in a poetic way. My work is about The Makeable World, the future of global capitalism & Identity.  

My artwork consists installations, walks, drawings, performances, videos, poems, field-recordings, texts, paintings, maps and photo's. As part of my work I quote phrases of poets, philosophers and writers in the fields of spiritual ecology, philosophy, geography, architecture, anthropology, science and the knowledge of traditional wisdom. I studied Fine Arts at Minerva Academy Groningen, The PhotoAcademy Amsterdam & The Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
