Human Rights Art Route, Amnesty International, Leiden
18 July – end of December 2021
Commisson for an artwork for Amnesty Leiden
In the centre of Leiden there are many locations which show the long way human rights have travelled. Because of the 50-year anniversary of Amnesty Leiden/Leiderdorp department, Amnesty realised a Human Rights Art Route along these locations. The result is a walking route, an app for the visitor, a folder with the route and a booklet with more depth.
The route consists of nine locations, which also feature work by three specially invited artists: Emma van Noort, Inge Reisberman and Izaak Zwartjes. The route is supported by texts written by city historian Cor Smit.

Slow Movements – De Vishal, Haarlem
10 July – 8 August 2021
Slow movements is an exhibition about slow and organic processes of movement such as growth, decay, flow and gravity. In nature that surrounds us, everything is in motion. Sometimes so slow that it escapes the human eye. Slow transitions can occur through natural processes such as displacement and conversion.
The artists work in various disciplines with ‘slow movements’, such as frozen or delayed movement, light and shadow or slow change. Sometimes abstracted, sometimes with visible elements from flora and fauna.
Participating artists: Cellavie L*A*B*, Hanneke Francken, Mary Geradts, Marjolein van Haasteren, Arno Kramer, Inge Reisberman, Lon Robbé and Izaak Zwartjes.
10 July – 8 August
Open in July from Tuesday to Sunday between 14.00 and 17.00 hrs.
In August between 11.00 and 17.00 hrs.

Ants in ‘De Utrecht’ – Acquisition videos in Leeuwarden
I am very pleased and honoured that two videos have been acquired for the Art Nouveau building ‘De Utrecht’ in Leeuwarden, a national monument designed by architects Alexander Kropholler and Frits Staal in 1904. After a thorough renovation, the doors opened on June 24 2021.
From 2 to 24 July, the building and ‘Additions‘ (2 – 24 july 2021) can be visited, including my ant films. ‘De Utrecht’ was a branch office of the former insurance company ‘Utrecht’. In the stained-glass windows, ants can be seen, as a symbol of social activity and work ethics.
I am so delighted that my contemporary ants have found their habitat in ‘De Utrecht’!
Book a time slot on Friday or Saturday afternoon between 12.00 and 17.00.

The new Dreef exhibition Counterpart highlights contemporary art by seven South-Holland artists: Lily de Bont, Maurice Braspenning, Joncquil, Inge Reisberman, Simon Schrikker, Rik Smits and Renie Spoelstra. Guest-curator Aart van der Kuijl.
The title Counterpart refers to the historical fact that North- and South-Holland were once united.
The artists show their vision of reality or an interpretation in paintings, drawings, installations, objects and video works. Conceptual, abstracted, realistic, multicoloured, black and white, based on a study of form or on a process. The works are a diverse reflection of what South-Holland has to offer in terms of visual art.
