Open Studio during GRAW

Studio view during Groot Rotterdams Atelier Weekend, which took place on 24 and 25 September 2022. This event provides art lovers a unique moment to meet artists in their studios and explore the many studio complexes located throughout Rotterdam.


In this interdisciplinary group show, nine artists from central, eastern, and southeastern Europe explore nation, belonging, autonomy, self-determination, identity, and leave-taking, in works that are both very intimate and highly political. 

The war in Ukraine is a turning point. Wars shifts borders of all kinds: personal, political, and moral. What happens to human beings when they become subject to these shifting borders? How is it possible to process such overwhelming experiences? And how can they be expressed in artistic explorations? 

The artists invited to exhibit here investigate shifting internal and external boundaries in their works: What does it mean to long for a homeland that no longer exists? Because, for example, you were born in a country that is no longer on the map, or is currently occupied and destroyed? Childhood memories of the 1990s, of the wars in the Balkans and the transformation processes in the post-Socialist countries play a role in grappling with these questions. What is the Material of the Nation and who controls it?

When you point your finger there are three point back

Excited to announce that I am working on a new body of work dealing with the idea of being born in a country that doesn't exist any more. Under the watchful eye of Frank van der Stok the project is gaining momentum.
