AMONGST OTHERS - BIG SHOW OFF (2016)
On january 23 2016 I organised a show in an empty space in Amsterdam. It was a dictatorial group show with myself as talentscout and mediator. A selection of works of students from the Fine Art department of ArtEZ Arnhem were being showed, together with my dear family and friends. I brought my inner circle to display, to show off my love.
I'm interested in the egocentrism that lies in loving: through loving my family, friends, and the work of fellow students, I love myself. A speech about this theme was played in the space continously.
