- DANCEQUALITY - (March 2015)
Institute for Provocation warmly invites you to a casual Sunday event on the Black Sesame dance floor. Afternoon sober dancing: celebrating conscious choices.

To come and dance sober this Sunday afternoon in an art space is a conscious choice. It is also a statement in support of gender equality. March 8th is the International Women’s Day: a day inaugurated in the beginning of the 20th century to highlight the fact that equality for all genders is still not a reality. Come dance with us!

- SOME THINGS PERISHABLE - (April/ May 2014)
For May 1, 2014, I was asked by NEST in den Hague (NL) to make a ‘One NEST stand’.

Works that reflect on the short time we live, the traces we leave behind and the poetry that while living, we know that everything will always perish.

This project is inspired by the theory tested by American social psychologist, Stanley Milgram that suggests we can all be linked to each other through six people.
