 I invited 100 people of all ages and background from the neighborhood of the museum, to built their own house out of a small piece of clay that I gave them.
All the houses were installed inside the museum space in a specially designed setup.

Outside the museum and during the opening, there was an open fire and visitors were offered soup, bread and a small piece of clay.
The project was still developing  by the visitors them selves. They were all enthusiastically building new houses, placing them among the existed ones and showing them to each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meyouthemus 2017
Work in progress / Offset print on 300gr A6 paper

 

Meyouthemus-front

 Meyouthemus-back

For quite some time I was trying to come up with a name, a word that would be inclusive, about everyone and everything, pointing to all directions, that it could be the concept, the product and
the logo itself and that could be able to stand autonomously with its own identity.

So, Meyouthemus was born.
Meyouthemus is, exists, happens in every moment, giving us the possibility to see life as a whole, where everyone and everything is taking part.

What will become it has yet to be found.
For the time being it is printed in A6 size cards and handed out between people I come across .

The axe  2014
Site specific sculpture – photograph / Chestnut branch and an axe 3m, fine art print 2m X 1m

 

The-axe

 

Culture is a powerful human tool for survival, and a fragile phenomenon. 
Powerful enough to unite, as well as to divide. 
I collected discarded objects from the surrounding area 
assembled them into 
a sculpture and installed it in the mountains of Lesvos island, Greece.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home 2012-13
Sculpture / 
Wood, MDF, wheels, blackboard paint 310cm X 390cm X 244cm
  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

I started making this house for practical reasons – a place to stay alone or with my children –
but in time it started to grow and transform.

The whole construction is flexible and quite open concerning its final form,
which is based on the idea of a house, an essential need but also a living entity: constantly moving and evolving.

The house has three windows and a door that can be opened in two different parts and inside a closet for clothes,
a desk with a chair, a sofa (big enough for one person to sleep) and an entresol with a double bed.

 Maybe, what we call identity is nothing more than a liquid state,
the course of which is defined through acts of awareness,
but also through randomness.
Eventually, what is left to us is the acceptance
of the fragility of ourselves, within the limits of each one’s ability.

Facing west  2009
Light box / Duratrans print, MDF,  300 X 50cm 

 

Inverting the image of the city, I recognise less.
I can’t tell east from west, which way is up or down, 
if it is a city or a natural landscape. 
And yet, I can see farther. It provokes both my eye and my perspective. 
It’s building up and falling apart, again and again.
And in this chaotic and inhospitable environment I am finding my home.

History is something that we inherit. Is our luggage. What’s exactly in it we can’t tell,
is an abstraction, heavy or not what keeps us rooted is its weight.

Garden-process

Trees have roots and birds have wings  2005
Performance-Installation /  Discarded wood, 12m high

 

During a period of two months, discarded wood was collected
around Amsterdam.
In the garden of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, I built a little house

under the tree, from which we slept, cooked and worked on the
installation.
The work and the process of building, became a meeting place,

an event, a social project, a celebration.
Passers by, neighbours, local office workers, school children came
to be part of the whole process.
My father came to live and work with me.His presence felt to me
as he was representing the past generations.

Earth 2004
Performance
In the basement of a former woodworking college, I stood naked and blindfold.

I had erased any evidence of human presence,and light.
The audience were invited to enter the space, one at a time.
They were handed a torch, and shown the way in via a ladder.
They could explore the space in their own time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The motorcycle project 2003
Book / Denim pocket and polaroids

Over the course of a 5 week residency,I invited individuals to join me on short motorcycle trips.
We always left from and returned to the same spot.
When, with whom, how long and to where was never predetermined.
Each journey was caught on Polaroid. I compiled a one off book of these 28 Polaroids.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the way home  2003
Performance/Installation

Collaboration with Avshalom Sigawi
Having removed all our belongings from our rooms at home,

and the doors, we brought them to a space visible to and
with 24hr access to the public. Using this as material we worked 
and lived in the space for 12 days. This performance culminated in an installation.
