Projects
Welkom in Nederland”   

Your ultimate guide to The Dutch land!

A look into The Netherlands as a whole and the challenges it faces from its past, present and future.

Through the prism of Jean Baudrillard concept of Hyperreality and Edgar Morin thoughts on Complexity, this project guides you between the many interlinked elements composing Dutch society, questioning the man-made country the Dutch have built for themselves while refusing to break down complicated issues and concepts into simple elements to give an illusion of clarity.

The pictures touch on many geological layers of the Dutchness and address topics in much need of attention such as their lovely colonial heritage, brilliant neoliberalism and the non-rising waters.  
In the same way The Netherlands has altered its own reality, the images are a blend of real, staged and manipulated pictures. Putting a finger on how we consume information and images, their authenticity and the way they shape our perceptions.

Ruigoods

«Ruigoods is an open-air gift shop selling souvenirs from the Ruigoord community in Amsterdam.
Often standing at the entrance of the community, we will sell you memories of this magical place for you to cherish throughout the years and bring back inner peace to your home.»

But Ruigoods and its merchandise are not connected to the actual community.
It is yet another act of appropriation and corrupts the hippie/new age spirit for commercial purposes.
Despite appearances, all items sold have no link to the location but were handmade by myself or found in random landfills.
The souvenir booth standing at the entrance of the community is also a comment on how many people come visit this place as if it was a zoo. Strolling through the only two streets on a bike or a car out of curiosity but never stopping or talking to Ruigoord people.

Planned Obsolescence

One day, the machines and AI we have built to make our lives easier will turn against us. When it happens, they’ll give us the proper beating we deserve.

But today is not the day yet...
Despite good efforts and an attempt to organise themselves, they barley go noticed in their fight to disrupt my daily life.

what used to be home

I grew up in a small village of about 300 inhabitants in Switzerland, we are surrounded by fields. Growing up, everything seems to be normal because it’s what you know and it doesn’t really come under question. I left this place two years ago and now w hat seemed to be normal, unoticable and boring isn’t anymore but in some way, it is these things that make this place home.

This series is a glimpse into the place of my childhood and the isolation I feel being back here during the lockdown.
