SIRENES at TOON

SIRENES at TOON


Atlantis

My collage series SIRENES is now on show and for sale at TOON. For this series I have combined images from vintage hair salon magazines as well as from old books about tropical fish. I cut, weaved and intertwined them to make a new, surreal image. Then I stitched them on white cotton cloth with different colors of sewing machine thread, going through and over the image itself, adding a the feeling of running water, water plants and hair.


Selling price: € 75, – each

A portrait for Kati Piri

A portrait for Kati Piri

On behalf of the families of political prisoners in Morocco, I made this portrait of Kati Piri.
It has been given to her as a present, on Saturday April 21st, at the end of the big demonstration in The Hague, because of all the work she does for the situation in the Rif (Northern Morocco).  The text below says: Tanmirt attas a Kati Piri negh, which is Tamazight and literally means: thank you so much, our Kati Piri.

Glad I could be of help in my own way.

The One Minutes Series: Biased Gods

The One Minutes Series: Biased Gods
‘Vlinderslag’ (Butterfly Stroke), a one minute video that I made in collaboration with Judith Koning, has been selected for The One Minutes Series, of March, ‘Biased Gods’, curated by Janna Ullrich. 
For ‘Biased Gods’, Janna Ullrich invited artists and filmmakers to create a forecast concerning daily decision-making of 60 seconds long. Does the forecast act as an everyday manipulator, protective or hero assistant? Additionally Janna selected films from the The One Minutes Collection to include in the series.


Vlinderslag – Maartje Jaquet & Judith Koning, 2014

In February, the series will tour museums and cultural organizations with a subscription to The One Minutes Series. So far these are:
Dortmunder U (DE)
East China Normal University, Shanghai (CN)
Mu, Eindhoven (NL)
Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle (NL)
Museum Hilversum (NL)
Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam (NL)
De School, Amsterdam (NL)
