Opening performance Reveal the Stage

March 2024: On the 23rd of March my solo exhibition at Zinder opened with a new performance of Reveal the Stage. The performers danced with a long piece of textile through the Zinder building, going down the stairs, through the library and ending at the exhibition space, where they installed the large textile piece into ceramic sculptures. This new installation is now on show until the 20th of April alongside models I made in preparation and a 30 minute video of the opening performance by Can Oktik. 

Performers Reveal the Stage at Zinder:
Isabelle Bisseling, Jade Kerste, Ylvie Meeter, Liesbet Mulder

Zinder is open Monday to Saturday. Monday 13:00 - 22:30, Tuesday to Friday 10-22:30, Saturday 10:00-16:00. Address: Rechtbankstraat 1, Tiel. 

Reveal the Stage at Zinder

March 2024: In the coming weeks I will be collaborating with performers on a new version of the piece Reveal the Stage that will be shown at the opening of my exhibition at Zinder in Tiel, the Netherlands. 

Reveal the Stage is a performance where dancers bring to life a 25 meter long piece of textile. The dancers explore the relationships of the textile to themselves, the building, the audience and ceramic sculptures created for the piece.

The performance is scheduled on Saturday the 23rd of March at 14:00 and is followed by the opening speech by curator Jade Kerste. 

The exhibition will be on show until the 20th of April 2024.

Work in Progress at Galerie Cpunt

February 2024: This week I've built up the exhibition Work in Progress / Werk in Uitvoering at Galerie Cpunt in Hoofddorp (previously Galerie De Meerse). In the exhibition I am showing props from previous performances and a collection of videoworks that document performances I've created over the past 8 years. Next to this the exhibition also gives an insight in the works I am creating during my residency at Cpunt. Work in Progress will be on view until the 22nd of March 2024. The exhibition is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 14:00 - 17:00 and by appointment. On Friday the 8th of March from 16-18h we will celebrate the exhibition together.

Residency at Cpunt 

September 2023: This month I have started my one year artist in residency at Cpunt, a cultural center in Haarlemmermeer, The Netherlands. During the residency I will experiment with ceramics and continue making performances.

Dancing Through (Un)common Worlds

March 2023: Currently I am curating and creating a new work for the exhibition Dancing Through (Un)common Worlds at De Vishal in Haarlem. The show will open with a performance on March 10th 2023 at 17:00 and will run until the 16th of April.

As a long canvas weaves itself through De Vishal; flowing along the pillars, creating intimate spaces for you to move through, Dancing Through (Un)common Worlds puts you face to face with a waterfall of hair, a whistling butterfly, ceramic 'body arcs' and tufted Joshua trees.
