These images are pictures of my latest residency(Q1 2019). This First World-War bunker was used as an ammunition stock room. The last line of defence around the capital city of Amsterdam. The bunker was completely deserted before it was renovated by Stadsherstel.
The time I worked over here was quite harsh because of the moist air and the shattering cold underground. But the historical charm and spacial freedom kept the internal fire burning. When the cold winter ended and the surrounding environment was in bloom, the local sheepherder released dozens of sheep upon the bunker. Therefore the bunker transformed from dead concrete to a lush Dutch paradise. Goose flying overhead and eggs hatching all around.
I mainly created paintings and sculptures. Subjects varying from migration to capturing light. The works work well in the rough interiour of the bunker. The rugged walls and smashed concrete ornating the paintings and installations.
A big thanks to GinDs for making this possible!
