De morgen wacht nog even (morning lingers on), a little book*) of poems, photos and music, is the result of a collaboration between photographer Patricia van de Camp with visual artist Maartje Jaquet (who wrote the poems), the musicians of Kein Angst, Nina Helvert and Jan den Besten (who made the music) and graphic artist Ellen Tolboom who did the layout.
It tells the story of a night to a day. Is it a dream? Is it reality?

The opening of the exhibition is on Sunday, September 28th at 16.00.
Maartje Jaquet will read the poems and there is a music performance by Kein Angst.

Herrekijker workshops at ITGWO

herrekijker itgwo 2014

Festival Into The Great Wide Open, september 2014, Vlieland, The Netherlands
Herrekijker workshops Kijken Kost Niks (looking costs nothing).
It was great to be working again with the kids (and their parents too) on the Herrekijker program, developed by Carolien Euser (1964-2013) and Madelinde Hageman. This year we were accompanied by Sander Veenhof who does a great job wrtiting the Herrekijker App, beautifully designed by Madelinde. They were able to test it on the spot and do a lot of debugging. Can’t wait the moment when the App will actually be available on the market so many people will be able to enjoy this quality time with their children.

Salon/collage workshop august 23

It was the first time my collage workshop *) took place inside my studio.

And I loved it. First of all because I could refer to the collage works made by fellow artists around me. And secondly because we had access to my entire collection of vintage books and magazines to help people look for images according to their needs.

The atmosphere was nice and the results were both amazing and very different. To be repeated.

August 2014 One Minutes Series: Color

My video glow has been selected for the august one minutes series: color.

one minutes series - color

Who is afraid of red, yellow and blue?
It is known to us that colors are the visual perception of physical properties. The way we see things is unique for every person. It has not been proven that one person perceives color the same as another person. What you might call blue, if someone else would be able to see it through your eyes, might call it green. Many artists before have researched this subject. For example Barnet Newman, who almost forced color upon the viewer.

Artist statement:
I work in different media: video art, photography, poetry.
My latest passion is collage, handmade with scissors, tape and glue.
In the Madonna&Child series I combine pictures from second hand art history books with plain images from how-to-take-care-of-your-indoor-plants kind of books. I cut away, replace, juxtapose, intertwine and overlap parts of these sacred and so well known images of Maria and her baby Jesus with images of flowers, leaves, branches and fruit, thus playing with concepts of fertility and immaculate conception, mother earth and the divine, life and death, love and loss.

SKETCHES from NYC for ARTI Salon 2014

arti salon 2014
This year’s theme for the group exhibition Salon 2014 at artist society Arti et Amicitiae (Amsterdam) is ‘time off’ (‘vakantiewerk’).
All artists will sometimes take time off their serious projects. In between, in preparation, or as an experiment. Sometimes these works can be more honest / truer or better than the “real thing”. The theme of this Salon is: Time off. Show your holiday work, show a work of ultimate relaxation and liberation. Which work takes time off and turned out very well, disarming, or free?

When I am relaxing or when when I am on vacation, I love to draw, using a fine black felt pen, sometimes adding water color.  I selected two small drawings, made in New York (last summer, 2013) .

Opening June 27 from 19:00 – 22:00.
The exhibition lasts until July 13.
