I'm a Dutch visual artist and performer who creates large scale installations and performances. My temporary structures express the relationship between home, human and horizon. Visitors are invited to reflect on the surrounding social, physical and historical landscape and to anchor their sense of place. In my smaller and more autonomous works I reflect on concepts of human presence with a focus on the artifacts of our activity. Where to find the horizon ?
Many works are the result of collaboration with local volunteers - sometimes skilled and sometimes just curious - getting connected to the nature of the project. This form of co-creation is at the heart of my work. It leads often to complex communal achievements and it also creates shared ownership and results in new connections in local society.
Next to this I'm also the artistic leader of Radiobaken, a by curiosity driven group creating community based radio-projects. We share the urge and passion to develop valuable and sustainable art-projects. We listen, stage, collaborate, share and try to establish value. On this website you see a selection of my work.
