The Swap was an installation based on the measurements and layout of the exhibition rooms of Pictura. This work was realised by plotting the rooms’ floor plans in identical sizes and compass points in natural reserve De Biesbosch.
A series of photographs was taken inside the projected floor plans and life-size prints were placed in the corresponding rooms in Pictura. This provided a tangible and physical connection between the Pictura rooms and the site in De Biesbosch.
On Friday 21 July 2017 I was walking near Ste. Orse in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, southwestern France.
I published an invitation to call me on that day between 13:00 and 14:00 (CEST).
When the telephone rang I did not answer the call but instead I made a photo of what I was looking at on that moment. I then sent the photo to the number that showed up on my phone.
I got 42 calls and sent 42 photos.
A Scene #1 – #8
On Facebook I announce small events that will take place at a certain location and at a certain moment in the near future. Everybody is invited to be at the exact spot at the exact time to contribute to the scene with his/her own simultaneous activity (or inactivity).
A Scene #1
On Saturday October 11 2014, I will walk on the Bergweg (on the right site) in the direction of the Gordelweg, carrying a plastic bag with oranges. At exactly 14:20 CET, I will pass the corner of the Zaagmolenstraat (51°56’08.6″N, 4°28’35.2″E), in front of nr 184 A, and at that exact moment the bag will tear and the oranges will spread over the pavement.
I will then gather the oranges, put them in another plastic bag and walk on in the same direction.

Some time after the successful Unnoticed Art Festival we started up the preparations of a new initiative called TheConceptBank.org.
TheConceptBank.org is a platform to present new works of contemporary live-art in an original and innovative manner.
The bank is filled with concepts of many artists; these concepts are written as simple manuals. Visitors of the site are able to choose a concept and print it to carry out the work on a time and place of their choice.
After performing the work, the user is asked to send his/her written experiences which will then be forwarded to the artists.
Theconceptbank.org is a non-profit initiative, the use of the databank will be free for everybody. The concepts are licensed under Creative Commons.
