On April 18, Marres opens the exhibition THINKING (out of) THE BOX: a selection of Vedute-manuscripts,
three dimensional objects as visualized thoughts that make the concept
of space accessible and tangible. Vedute invites artists, designers,
architects and others active in different disciplines, to visualise
their fascination with space in a work measuring 44 x 32 x 7 cm in
closed form. Unlike books, 3D-manuscripts reveal their content as visual
statements. Some are directly accessible, others disclose themselves
literally step by step; the variety is proving to be endless. Among
others: Peter Struycken, Marina Abramović, JCJ VanderHeyden, Paul
Panhuysen, Peter van der Heijden, Marlies Dekkers en Krijn de Koning.

‘Anything Anytime Anywhere For No Reason At All’ is my favorite Zappa acroniem; a motto for my fascinations as an artist and collector. Being the curator and organizer of the Collection Exhibitions in the Berlage Room of Arti for three years, I now hand the concept over to Harald Schole and end my contributions by an exhibition of my own work, based on my collections.
Among others: Rhein leporello’s, postcards of Eiffeltowers, postcards of dolmen and menhirs, Vinylcovers of Zappa, reli-cards, girlstickers, naturalia, trachtenfeder, gaslighters, heroes and crystals.

‘I am a little space’ May 29 till June26
On Friday 29 th of May an extraordinary exhibition opens in the Museum der Unerhörten Dinge in Berlin. In continuation of they’re cooperation in Amsterdam at the Natuurlijk Museum (2007) Peter van der Heijden, Erik Fens and Marc Volger now exhibit in the Berlin Museum of Roland Albrecht. To realise a broad and monumental group exhibition in this tiny museum they invited Els Bannenberg, Frank Halmans and Paul Vendel to join the project. The six artists will show objects, that are made especially for
this exhibition. They invite the visitor to zoom in and focus in order
to appreciate and experience the full size and value of the shown
In “I am a little space” the minuscule is magnified and the “cosmic large” is been presented in a comprehensible size, alongside the works of Roland Albrecht.
Notions of scale, size and proportion are being thrown in space and land safely; “Scale sucks”
Invited by de Stichting Kunst in Kolderveen (KIK), I
am, for a period of 7 weeks, working as an artist in residence in a
former cheese factory in the rural village, Kolderveen, in the Dutch
province of Drente.
I am working on a installation and presentation in direct relation with the
natural life forms in the waters and fields surrounding the village. I have been
fishing in the ditches and ponds for algae’s, small organisms and snails.
I determined and scanned them and created a databank of the many different
species that were emerging in these last explosive springtime weeks.
Some of the organisms will be magnified in life projections and print sequences.
The choreographic qualities of the water flies and the mosquito larvae is
magnificent, but snails eggs and worms also play they’re part in a performance.
The process of searching, collecting and registering the species forms a
part of the presentation.
