THE SKY IS BLUE is a show celebrating the colour blue. Historically blue was a very difficult and rare colour to make. Therefore it was an exclusive and royal colour for the elite. Today blue is the favourite colour of many people and is celebrated in many different shades. This exhibition shows blue works but also golden, yellow and red works from young artists and designers.
FLOWER DIRT was a show celebrating flowers. Visitors emerged themselves into a floral world, smelling, tasting and experiencing more than the eye could see. By opening a temporary flower store on the side, the artworks really came to life.
David R harper - zodiac
Photo's by Rich Maciejewski and Toni Hafkenscheid
After almost 30 years of 12 Trees, The Gardiner Museum was looking for a new tradition. In collaboration with the curatorial department, a new tradition was brought to life with this exhibition. David R Harper's installation was inspired by the twelve signs of the zodiac. This original work was commissioned as part of New + Now, an annual celebration of emerging artists and contemporary ceramics.
Bling Bling was an exhibition I implemented at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. The Boijmans Vriese collection, is a permanent exhibition that presents a series of European metal products mostly dating from around 17th till the 19th century. During Bling Bling, these European products were mirrored with similar or contrasting products bought in Rotterdam. It confused the visitor on what was collection and what was brought in for Bling Bling. Sometimes obvious and sometimes more hidden, the mix of objects questioned originality, showed different cultural heritages and reflected a much more contemporary Rotterdam, showing some of the many different cultures that inhabit the City.
Together with Emma Walch and Tent Rotterdam, we build a temporary installation/restaurant/nail-studio called "The Emma Inn" for one day only. we surprised many visitors with this hysterical installation questioning the INTEGRITY of beauty and beauty products.

This exhibition in the Jenevermuseum in Schiedam, combined old and new. Texts from old birthday cards were displayed next to new, poetical birthday cards from MWAH, a Rotterdam based company that specializes in special texts.
Werkers van schiedam
Werkers van Schiedam by Jan van der Ploeg. Meaning Workers of Schiedam. this exhibition showcased a selection of photo's with technical workers from Schiedam in a derelict former water hydro building.
De Soda Fabriek
An intimate and raw installation of Aura Rendon Berger in a old abandoned factory. The work, consisting of huge blown up forms, suggesting intimate female body parts, filled up the room and left visitors questioning intimacy and space.
POP-UP GALLERY KUNST ZONDER K 2014
I started this pop-up gallery for young artist. The names of the artists were hidden and onlyafter the purchase of a work, the artist's name would be revealed. The idea for this was born because artist names and reputation are getting more and more important. The name of the gallery, translated as "art without a", plays with that notion, while initially suggesting the art here isn't "real" art.
