Last January (2020), my work "Forverts" was exhibited in the exhibition "IDENTITIES: Contemporary Caribbean Perspectives" at Wereldmuseum (Rotterdam). Since then, I’ve been working on translating the work into a publication together with graphic designer Jan-Pieter Karper. The publication is ready to go to print, but I still need some funding in order to get it published. You can support the production of 'Forverts' by pre-ordering your own copy (for 35 euros) on voordekunst or by buying one of the other rewards, like a package of HR wallpapers for your phone/desktop! The book will be published halfway/towards the end of January. The rewards will also be ready by then.
“Templated Thinking”, which has been nominated for the Gijs Bakker Award, will be exhibited during Design Academy Eindhoven’s Online Graduation Show during Dutch Design Week. You can experience it at www.templatedthinking.com from October 17th until October 25th, 2020.
I also talked about my research and copy culture in general in the Arena DDW TV panel talk “CTRL + C” moderated by Ned Kaar together with Alice Wong, Anna Oxholm Iversen, Brendan Cormier, Fiona Herrod and Yasmeen Khaja. Due to corona I wasn’t able to make it to the studio IRL, so I attended virtually - the result is my face on a huge screen: tellin it like it is.
From Thursday, August 27th until Sunday, August 30th, 2020 my graduation work “Templated Thinking” will be exhibited alongside those of my classmates in the exhibition “What Comes After Will Not Be Like What Came Before” at TAC Eindhoven.
I’m excited to share the first translation of my MA thesis ‘Contemplating The Template’ is now available on vimeo in the form of a video essay. It may seem like a departure from my photographic work, but this is just a next step in what I want to be working with as a researcher and image-maker.
As part of Wereldmuseum Rotterdam’s new group exhibition “IDENTITIES; Contemporary Caribbean Perspectives” - I’ll be showing my graduation work, “In The Middle of the Atlantic, A Part of Me was Left Behind”, and my new work, “Forverts”. I’m so excited to be part of such a talented group of people, including Kevin Osepa, Quinsy Gario and Sara Blokland. The show will be on view from January 17th until April 30th, 2020.
I’m in St. Martin (SXM) for two weeks working on a new project!
