When MPZ asked me if I was willing to work in the GKV as artist in residence for the whole exhibit season 2014, I just finished taking down the impromptu exhibit of last year, an exhibit they ensured me which was a huge succes. (compliments are always nice.. :))
So, October last year I said yes and now after half a year, in only one week, we will start building the first part of the exhibition ‘Confluence’.
In recent years I have focussed on larger installation pieces and for this exhibit I made two new works. One consist of 6 pieces which will individually be placed in the 6 niches on the right side of the church. The other work will take up the left corridor of the building.
I am pleased to invite you for the opening on May 10 from 4 pm to 6 pm. and hope to see you there.
As the GKV offers a perfect platform for artists and a perfect space to think outside the box, we worked on the idea of inviting other artists for collaboration projects and I am very happy to say that the 3 artists I was eager to work with have accepted the offer.
First in line will be Zuz (Be.) Zuz observes and selects. While her passion lies with glassblowing/hot sculpting she also draws and combines a variety of materials in her sculptures. We will be working together on a sculpture from the 16th of June.
From the 29th of June, I will be working with Jane Green (Esp.) Greens’ photography does not fit into any one category, she shoots the in between moments that are usually lost in the rush. Jane asked me to invite groups of people for a photoshoot and I will let you know when that call goes out.
Caroline Schofield (Irl.) is our 3rd visiting artist. Growing up as an outsider influences her practise and interest in people and history. Schofield likes to explore memory and its fragility in her work using drawing, stitch, pinning, sculpture and shadows to create her pieces.
More info about the exhibit and events and photo’s will end up on this site, perhaps you would like to ‘follow’, (follow button underneath the page) so you will get all the info and updates in your mailbox.
