2016.08.22 I participate in a group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. “In 2016 Japan and Belgium celebrate 150 years of cultural and diplomatic relations. The city of Kanazawa, sister city of Ghent, wants to bring together leading artists from Ghent and Japan in an exhibition in the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa. Due to budget restraints, the selection is limited to 2D work. From the long list of artists proposed by us to our colleagues in Japan, your work was selected for participation in the exhibition together with 15 others.
It is not the goal of this exhibition to show only top end artists; rather a sample of what Ghent has to offer within the visual arts.” Other selected artists: Steven Baelen, Thomas Bogaert, Atelier Elke Andreas Boon, Céline Butaye, Marie Cloquet, Mario de brabandere, Johan De Wilde, Isa D’hondt, Marnix Everaert, Tatjana Gerhard, Cindy Morlion,Meggy Rustamova, Ante Timmermans, Servi van Grinsven, Colin Waeghe.

2016.03.24 Sometimes it is time for something completely different. So here it is: a glimpse of my new photographic research project “swimming taco salad”.
Feeling a bit naked though: the new curator on Democratic Jungle, wrote an article about it even though my project is still under development.
A small selection of works is included in the article, and I am continuing with reflecting about possible installations, writing texts and finding people to talk about it.
It started in 2014 combining a growing interest in digital media and abstraction.

I am very happy to announce you that i am one of the finalists of the Lensculture Award 2014!!
All info: click here.
“Wow! Here are 31 unique points of view from 31 great photographers across the world! This remarkable group was selected by an international jury who reviewed work from 118 countries. Six continents and 18 countries are represented here, making this a snapshot of some of the best contemporary photography on the planet. Each of the photo series demonstrates photography’s continuing ability to show us the important, strange, sad and wondrous out in the world (and in our imaginations), while the single images underscore the power that can be captured in just one frame. Enjoy!”
