LACUNA FESTIVAL 2022, Theme 2022 : “CLASH”

LACUNA FESTIVAL 2022 , (international contemporary art festival), Lanzarote, Spain, Theme 2022 : “CLASH”, 02 – 29 July 2022

Various physical venues and virtual events. Sala El Aljibe in Haria and Casa de la Cultura Benito Armas Perez in Yaiza, Lanzarote, Spain

 

I wanted to approach the theme "Clash" from a different view. in a more quiet, hidden and introvert manner. Therefore I choose a very metaphoric style and to reflect and express the subject through objects we use and see daily... chairs. The chairs are placed in a situation which can be consider as a clash, no dialogue, to confronting each other.

The Koblenz art association mehrkunst e.V, have been planning an art campaign with the motto "Compass Europe: East Wind" for a long time. Inspired by the numerous peaceful protests in Belarus last year. Now events have escalated, Ukraine has been invaded, war is raging. Despite the feeling of helplessness and powerlessness, mehrkunst e.V wanted to react : with a jointly created work of art in yellow + blue and red + white. All works can be auctioned on site or bought directly. The proceeds go to aid associations and aid activities of Ukraine and the Belarusian freedom movement.

The five graphic works  are executed in mixed media, based partly on linocut and digital printing techniques.

«DO NOT GO OUT THE WINDOW»

«DO NOT GO OUT THE WINDOW»

13/06/2022 – 20/06/2022  Haze Gallery, 10783, Berlin, Germany

“Do not go out the window” online exhibition represents international artists and their works with a sharp political, and social message. Like ray of lights, artworks help us look at ourselves, at our problems, problems with which we don’t have to accept. They help us to remember serious political, economic, social, and environmental problems. Remember that it’s not the norm, and we must continue to stand up for our values and ideals.

The following works of mine are presented Photography works : "I can not see " & "Inside-Outside" Video Work “the glass between” 


LINES FICTION

My animation video PARALLEL UNIVERSES is part of : Film Project LINES FICTION

Accompanying the exhibition ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS 2022 the project Film LINES FICTION presents a screening with animations and drawing films.

In the exhibition LINES FICTION, international artists show their digital animations and animated films. Drawings on paper and drawings within the moving image are complementary poles that cannot exist without each other. Based on the line, they inspire and complement each other. The result is a film reel from A to Z that is as diverse as drawing as a medium itself.

LINES FICTION is initiated by Berlin-based artist and curator Bettina Munk.


URBANSONICS

Playing from 7 June to 14 August 2022 

cold bench,  Via Vallazze 7, 20131 Milano, Italy

My two sound and audiovisual works "Urban Pandemic " and "The Healing" will be present at URBANSONICS

2020 -2022 has been strange years. After the surreal quietness comes the new normal, how have we adapted it so far? New restrictions, no restrictions; new variants, no vaccination. These two years have brought out the best and worst in ourselves and the others. Urban Pandemic presents sound and audiovisual works that do not define right and wrong but echo the peace and fear; the calmness and confusion we have been experiencing during those years


Buddhist Art Meditations

Three graphic works of mine are published in The Buddhist Art Meditations (BAM) Journal (The Inaugural Issue 2022. Issue One May 2022, Singapore)

BAM (Buddhist art meditations) is an journal for exchanging ideas on connections between creative and Buddhist practice. It mainly showcases original, personal, creative interpretations of “Buddhist Art”.

Of all the major world religions, I have dealt with the philosophy of Zen Buddhism the most. Partly this was due to my years of living in the Far East. To this day, this has influenced my artistic visions, partly consciously and partly unconsciously

Acoustic Interiors

Between January 17th and 21st, 2022, I took part in the Acoustic Interiors project that was actually outside of the medium I work with...sound. Of course, when you work on video, it also affects the sound. But I've never really dealt with sound as an individual medium. This was partly due to my hearing loss. The project is based at two locations in the old building Royal Conservatoire and Amare the new culture center of The Hague. I focused on the old Royal Conservatoire building during January 2022 The initiator is NEW EMERGENCES and the curator is the sounds artist Mrs Anne Wellmer.

In the course of the year the project will be pursued further with events, among project presentations.
