From the 17th of January I am in Japan as an artist-in-residence at the AIT, the Arts Initiative Tokyo. I stay in a traditional small Japanese warehouse in the area Yukigaya, provided by the AIT and the Mondriaan Fund.
Invited by Ayumi Suzuki I will screen a selection of my short films at the Cave - Ayumi gallery in Tokyo on the 29th of March.
For the Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri I recently made a DVD of my short film Il Grande Cretto di Gibellina which was a commission of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. The Fondazione Burri also acquired a HD-version for their collection. De DVD is for sale at their museum in Citta di Castello for €20,- and you can also order it online, by sending me an email.
On June 16 2019 my love Menno Boerema died unexpectedly. Besides a very sweet and caring boyfriend Menno was an amazing experienced and wonderful editor. We worked together on my short film When you return I'll be living by the waterside and my installation Fragile-Handle with Care. I miss him like crazy.
