In collaboration with some members of Filmwerkplaats Rotterdam ( Esther Urlus, Nan Wang, Anitsh Brape & Farah Rahman), I will be creating and performing the visuals for Requiem For The Avantgardistic Staat 8 and 10 nov 2018.
a composition by Michiel Klein of Eklin, Lewsberg, MiMa and Adept fame, performed by Klein alongside a small orchestra.
8 nov is the premiere in WORM Rotterdam.
10 nov as part of the Mini Le Guess Who in Utrecht. ( more details tba)
A Requiem, Mass for or of the Dead….. we took this as a starting point for creating a new 16mm work.
In August 2018 I started working on a new 16mm film; FLAMINGO.
Working with a handcrank DIY 16mm pinhole camera, once a week i shared some time with the Flamingo’s of Amsterdam. Observe, Capture, Document them in a very uncontrolled visual way ,as with my camera i cannot see, there is no viewer…. there is also no lense, so the light hits the film directly through a small hole as i roll it from 1 side to the other…. making funny stories about them with my friend Dan who accompanied on a couple of my visits…..
August 2018 FLAMINGO month….. will be developing this work further over the winter…
