Le pendule de Foucault en signes

La table imaginée pour l’exposition du pendule de Foucault au Mudam dans le cadre de l’exposition Eppur Si Muove a été pensée comme un rappel du lien particulier que cet instrument entretient avec la Terre : elle prend la forme d’un monticule de terre argileuse brute, surmonté d’un large disque en argile poli manuellement, à l’aide d’un galet – une technique ancienne permettant de faire ressortir les qual

hunnie

What are the key ingredients of our desires for nature? To which form of nature do we want to contribute, now that cows and greenhouses are disappearing from the landscape? In the course of a year long field research, Hunnie (‘them’ in local slang) designed and tested new forms of recreation and maintenance in De Bovenlanden in the Dutch Province of Utrecht. The polder is destined to exchange its agricult

ICI Casa, Ville Inventive

What happens when a group of designers from The Netherlands arrive open-minded and empty-handed to Casablanca, and tries to put together an exhibition from scratch, using the city as an instant source of inspiration and production? Set up as a work period  in answer to the brief for a Dutch Design exhibition, ICI produced new work in the space of two months in collaboration with a Moroccan team of designers, students

Ongelofelijk, Ongetwijfeld

Personal retrospective in a group show about blurring boundaries in today’s artistic practices. Part 1 consisted of three tables (skewed copies of the ones in my home studio) displaying drawings and writings, as well as (yet) unrealised plans. In the back two films screened side by side, complementing and mirroring each other visually. Part 2 consisted of paper scale models of places where I have worked, or wou

Zoutmeisje

Film is a place where an idea can be articulated through a gesture. Searching for an image is searching for meaning. 27th of January 2006: salt fairy in the night waking and sprinkling white gold falling there where lines meet salt stars form dust bodies from heaven “At such minuscule distances everything falls under the charm of uncertainties, space and time begin to dance, to twirl around, particles stop to know wh

Lieve,

Lieve, (Dear,) is part of a Més-aventures video compilation including moving and narrative images. Attempts to appropriate, impersonate and understand phenomena that move me. Lieve, is an ode to the written word (the grown-up little scribble that simply is voice, vision and venture all at once) and to handwriting (the spirited and deeply personal deed that feeds the layered and founded dialogue I yearn for). Lieve, i

Champs Libre

The work draws on the past of Luxembourg City as a fortress; elements of military scenario’s were identified and translated into constructive scenario’s of use. Coming across an engraving of a war game at the Musée de l’Histoire de la Ville was decisive in the making process. The drawing illustrates the cleverness of strategic military thinking: a largest possible number of complex situations (force

5050

5050 is a project about trust and exchange. 5050 researches alternative ways to deal with design and the language of objects in general. 5050 is interested in the added value of collaboration: collaboration is reaction, reaction is energy, and energy is life… Hence 5050 can be a mind trampoline for designers who seek more than their own signature. 5050 uses the idea of exchange (of taste, ideas, traditions) as the st

Fake

Graduation project that questions the reliability of the world as it is presented to us. Giving shape to a personal fairy-tale around the idea of fake: “I take, I make, I fake”. Objects are approached as blanc props open to interpretation: the idea of a lamp (an aura), the idea of a staircase (a shift in perspective), the idea of a window (a framed view) and the idea of a bed (a hint of escapism). An attempt to re-in
