The One Minutes on Tour – Nanjing, China

The One Minutes on Tour – Nanjing: Remake.
From 21 October until 20 November three of my one minute films will be screened in Nanjing, China, in the Art Museum of Nanjing University of the Arts (AMNUA): ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ (Amsterdam 2012), ‘Glow’ (France 2011) and ‘Water Ballet’ (Amsterdam 2008).
In close collaboration with The One Minutes, AMNUA co-curated and designed a show that is in a sense a Chinese remake of the realm of The One Minutes. The exhibition takes place in AMNUA’s futuristic Hall03 on the top floor of the museum. The museum was established in 2012 and is a feast of contemporary Chinese architecture.

TWIZA book launch and exhibition

Thursday evening, september 8, we celebrated TWIZA with a book launch at Huis De Pinto, Amsterdam. It was a wonderful, warm and unforgettable evening with performances of poets / writers / artists who contributed to the book TWIZA of de kunst van geven en nemen (TWIZA or the art of give and take) and with a musical performance by Hassan Benhammou, who improvised on the lute.

TWIZA started during my artist residency at Green Olive Arts in Tétouan, where I went to make drawings (ink and water colour) of the people but where I worked on my photography and video art at the same time.

Back in Amsterdam, I invited Dutch and Moroccan Dutch writers (Asis Aynan, Shida Boukhizou, Maria van Daalen, Leo Divendal, Jos van Hest, Chaib Massaoudi, Nisrine Mbarki, Frenk Der Nederlanden, Mustafa Stitou, and Sandra de Weijze)  to see if they could find inspiration by the art I made during my stay in Morocco.

This resulted in an art book, self – published, printed on different kinds of paper, signed and numbered in a special edition of 150. It can be ordered through me (send me an e-mail at mjaquet@xs4all.nl) or bought at the exhibition at Huis De Pinto. The price for the book is €20,- Postage within the Netherlands is €2,92 and abroad it’ll be €6,25.

The original drawings, the photos and the videos are now being exhibited at Huis De Pinto in Amsterdam, together with the texts (in Dutch).
