The february 2014 edition of the one minutes series is dedicated to my video work and is called maartje jaquet wander world
Jos Houweling wrote the introductary text:
“Maartje Jaquet travels, wanders, sees, sees and finds little treasures,
The ordinary becomes exceptional and the exceptional becomes almost ordinary.
Video art about seeing.
Without unnecessary ornaments.
Tributes to the eye.”
