ALIEN REALISM (leave)
oil on linen 90,9x60,6 cm. 2019
For the series ALIEN REALISM I commission a Korean artist to reproduce my marker sketches in oil paint. Disregarded and scattered around the studio before,
these sketches are brought into the center of our attention when they undergo a transformation from being quick marker drawings into elaborate time-consuming oil painted copies.
My handwriting dissolves in the skillful technique of the Korean artist.

"FRIDGE, PLEASE..... Display + Displacement = Displayement" installation at Institute for Provocation Beijing, China, 2017 pictures by Sun Shi
For the exhibition and the time working in China I received an Artist-in-Residency grant from the Mondriaan Fund
One More Time, a display/sculpture showcasing my project The Drawings of Ed Ruscha at Common Center, Seoul 1650 x 840 x 260 cm. 2014
The Drawings of Ed Ruscha 16 mm film, loop, 2011
The Drawings of Ed Ruscha book, 18 x 21 x 29 cm. 2013
I made rubbings of the cover of Ruscha’s catalogue
'COTTON PUFFS, Q-TIPS, SMOKE AND MIRRORS: THE DRAWINGS OF ED RUSCHA'.
The rubbings are not work to be shown as such but are material to make two different works, a book and a 16 mm. film.
Both works deal with subjects such as medium specificity,
production and reproduction processes,
the economy of time and authenticity. An important characteristic of the project is the translation of the drawing from one medium into another.
There is a movement from the book towards the drawing,
from the drawing to the film and from the film to the book.
I worked together with designer Na Kim to make the book.
The book has an edition of ten. Three copies are only used for exhibitions, two artist proofs and five are in pair with the 16 mm. film.
The artist publication and the exhibition were generously supported by the Mondriaan Fund

In 2010 I bought advertisement space in the Dutch art magazine Metropolis M. In each number I advertised one of my signs.
