Me in a place I know very well.
Me in a place I’ve never been before.

In a train,
running at high speed,
I moved as slowly as possible.

Monday, 23 October 2022,
between Düsseldorf and Munich.


The train ran from A to B in sixty minutes.
During that time, I walked from the back to the front of the train.

Untitled (2021)

In the fast-flowing Río Segura,
I placed a bucket weighted with stones,
to create a place of solidity, rest and stillness.

The work was made at AADK, Blanca, Spain,
during a residency in October/November, 2021.

One-screen installation.
HD-video, loop, sound, 15:04  min.

The video-work Untitled (2021) has been awarded the Pictura Prize 2022.


Night Walks

Several times a year I plan a night walk in Dordrecht.
The walk takes place in silence.
On each occasion, six walkers can join the walk.
During the walks I make an audio recording.
The (free) sound file will be a personal memory for each participant.

The next walk is scheduled for:
Wednesday, 15 March 2023, in the early morning at 03:00 a.m.
There are still places available.

If you want to walk with us,
please click on the button and sign up on the website.
Participation is free.
