OPENING & SHOW 'The Romantic Escape'
SHOW & CALENDAR 'I am not doing anything until I feel the need'

From 16 oktober until 28 november 2014 the show 'I am not doing anything until I feel the need' by Joanneke Meester was held in the artspace of De Nederlandsche Bank.

Artis Joanneke Meester reflects on the necessity of the things that one puts on oneself and on eachother in daily life. She created the sentence ‘I am not doing anything until I feel the need’ and invited 365 artists, including me to make a personal & visual interpretation of this sentence for a calendar. This calendar confronts us daily with the mantra: ‘I am not doing anything until I feel the need’. The show gave an overview of nearly all the original works from the calendar.

The calendar can be purchased in almost every museum and bookshop in the Netherlands. It can also be ordered online via: 154%

Sanquin ArtCollection

Sanquin's art collection was established by Joghem van Loghem (scientific director from 1950 until 1978) in 1959. It was one of the first companies to have such an art collection. Van Loghem was convinced there is an interaction between art and science. Art in the laboratory had to be inspiring.Van Loghem's work has been carried on by an Art Committee that was founded in 1985. The Art Committee has recently acquired 'The Parade' which is now part of the impressive Sanquin art collection.
Mondriaan Fund
In November 2012 my work was granted a Basisstipendium by the Mondriaan Fund. This is an incredible generous grant that helps artists develop their art and professional career over a longer period of time by creating space to experiment and create without the direct necessity of selling the work. Thanks to this grant I am able to work on 'The Romantic Escape', 'The Untold, The Unseen : Finding the Truth' and even more series of work.
