VISUAL ARTIST BASED IN GRONINGEN, THE NETHERLANDS
In the weekend of 7 & 8 october 2017 I participated in Kunst op de Koffie, an exhibition concept in the neighbourhood Spijkerkwartier in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Artists were invited to exhibit in houses and café's and it was my honour to create a work in cafetaria Dolfijn - a place where you can order typical dutch snacks. I performed a song laying in the cooled showcase, accompanied by a videowork playing on the menu screens. The song is called Hitte ("Heat") and you could say it's about climate(-change).
Most visitors were positively suprised by my unusual presence, except for a group of youngsters who filmed me and placed the video titled Rare frikandel on dumpert.com, a website where people ventilate their opinion without restraint. It resulted in 400.000 views and interesting discussions.
