Project Tinder Times

End 2019-2020 I will be working on a new project. Tinder Times is an artistic investigation into online dating. The project deals with current social themes such as transience, sexual identity, role patterns and changing forms of relationships that also touch upon contemporary feminism. At the same time it is a personal research in which dating is the motive to make art.
Works for this project consist of model paintings on rice paper, works in mixed techniques on perspex and on canvas and 3 artist's books in the form of multiples with screen printing, digital print and mixed media.
There will be an installation 'Tinder Times', a video and during a residency in Italy I will make a dance performance.
Parts of the project will be shown in interim presentations (at the end of 2019 for example presentation of multiple 'Tinder Times' with Rijksakademie in Printing Plant, Looiersgracht 60).
The works will come together in a final presentation at a location yet to be determined.
