Het Bij Kantoor – De Utrecht – Leeuwarden
5 april – 16 november 2024

Expositie Het Bij Kantoor in De Utrecht in Leeuwarden

The Utrecht in Leeuwarden is a hidden jewel in the middle of Leeuwarden city centre. Built in 1904 in Jugendstil, packed with quotations, richly decorated and overflowing with symbolism. Carefully provided with high-quality contemporary additions in 2021.

In the sketch design by Alexander Kropholler and Jan Frederik Staal, long rows of ants and a strip of bees are inscribed in the stained-glass windows. Apart from ants, bees, pelicans, butterflies, lions and, lately, mosquitoes live together in harmony in the building.

During the exhibition Het Bij Kantoor, many more species of animals temporarily take up residence. Lovingly drawn, ingeniously sculpted and patiently filmed animals.

Featuring work by Lolkje van der Kooi, Machiel Braaksma, Skelte Braaksma, Tjibbe Hooghiemstra, Inge Reisberman

The new video Colletes Hederae will be shown. The two ‘ant-films’ acquired in 2021 will also be heard and seen. Immediately as you enter De Utrecht you will hear a soundscape of ant sounds and then….please look up

About my videowork

My work covers the fields of video and video installations, ranged in the ‘slow cinema’ area. In longshots I use substances like flour, salt and water, mostly in an industrial environment.
I usually work in series, taking time to connect the substances to the narratives I want to reveal. My videos are about perception of time and space and are often based on biblical themes.

Homo Bulla website

Homo Bulla (2019-2021) is the last major video series made in the then empty spaces of industrial heritage site De Meelfabriek in Leiden. Since a while the factory buildings are in transition to a modern residential-business complex.

A new website has been created for Homo Bulla. Click here to take a look!

Human Rights Art Route, Amnesty International, Leiden

Amnesty Leiden opdracht in de Bakkerij Leiden
Entrance mat and bowls in De Bakkerij Leiden

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.

Right: video ‘You never work alone’ on monitor in the conference room .

July 2021 – 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.

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’!
