upcoming projects and exhibitions:
From 17 September until the first of December I’m artist in residence at the Calcutta Art Research Foundation (CARF) in Kolkata (India). CARF is residency program by the Mondriaan Foundation (The Netherlands). I’m finally getting to the cradle of my Lebensreform research and close to clay deity’s that appear all over the city during the yearly Durga Puga festival. Later al of these deity’s get immersed into the Hooghly river, a side arm of the Ganges, back to their source.
June 2019 – September 2020
TUMULUS is an enclosed garden installation that functions as a natural ruin, compost heap, cement + soil sculpture, seedbed, earthwork, lo-tech fountain, drinking/ dyeing source, and dunghill. Over the course of 16 months from June 2019 to September 2020, artist Ruchama Noorda will transform the patch of greenery next to our Sluisdeurenloods into a living sculpture and performance site.

1. Vegetative State (June – mid July)
2. Growth Imperative (mid July – October, with a dedication ceremony on Friday September 13, 2019)
