For this years IJsselbiënale, I am commissioned to make a new art work. The location for the work is an old ‘overslaggebouw’ in Deventer. It’s in the ‘Havenkwartier’ only 100 meters from the IJsselbiënnale headquarters, next to Kunstenlab.

The IJssel Biennale is a biennial international outdoor exhibition with stimulating artworks along the river IJssel and an extensive cultural programme the ‘Nevengeul’.
The outdoor exhibition of the consists of 27 temporary, monumental and challenging works of art by national and international artists. The cycle route of 100 kilometres leads you in beautiful and varied stages along all artworks in special places along the river IJssel: a voyage of discovery through the landscape of the most beautiful river of our country.

This years IJsselbiënnale will take place from June 17th till September 17th.

During a four-week group exhibition at the AG in Utrecht, current participants of the collective OCTA will present new work made especially for the gallery space. The participants of the third version of OCTA are Niels Albers, Bas Burghard, Janina Frye, Sachi Miyachi, Tom Putman, Anna Reerds, Bart Schalekamp and Samantha Vlaming. OCTA is a collaboration between artists from two different cities. Within this inter-city project, the participants aim to break the boundaries of their individual practice by acting as a collective and creating common work for exhibitions in both cities of origin. The current formation is from Utrecht and Amsterdam.
