I’ve had the pleasure of once more to work with the incredibly talented choreographer Jan Martens. From the very first moment I saw a piece created by him, I was blown away and could see that he is a raw talent and at such a young age already has developed a dance language of his own. From that moment on I try to see everything he makes and I’ve been fortunate enough that Jan allows me to photograph and film during rehearsals, to document his wonderful journey in creating pieces.
Building a mobile studio in one of the dressing rooms was not possible without the help and material of friend and fellow photographer Walter Saenen, who in this way helped me create the images I had in my head when I saw this show in sneak preview quite a while ago. Working in a studio setting was very new as well and it’s been wonderful to test this out, create images and learn.
Once more I have the pleasure of working together with KAOS vzw project.
After the duo exhibition ‘Intuition’ with photographer Lieven van Meulder, they now initiated a postcard project called ‘Return to sender’ which will open in contemporary art space Wiels this coming 17th of September in Brussels.
Artists with or without psychological sensitivities, more and lesser know, were sent blank postcards and asked to return them with their art on it. An impressive list of people did just that.
Dan Graham, Guillaume Bijl, Geert Goiris, Vaast Colson, Benjamin Verdonck, Lieven van Meulder, and me are just some of the artists participating.
