JaDa – De Missie  Residency project
From March 1 to May 31, 2021, JaDa worked at the studio of
AIR De Missie, in nursing home Park Zuiderhout. We lived and worked among the priests and missionaries, who reside there in the last phase of their working lives. We studied the history of the institution and its residents. The former missionaries traveled the world; they worked in Congo, Ghana, the Philippines, Brazil, Papua New Guinea and the Dutch East Indies and have amazing stories. JaDa was also on a mission: the mission to propagate the arts.
A double LP ‘Zij Zoeken Zich Zelf Niet’ next to the book (see top at this page) as a result of the project is in the make.
Also, a few documentary and art movies are in the make. To be released!

VOUCH II, Loods 6 Amsterdam, Maart-April 2022

I participated in Vouch II, a special art fair organised by artists themselves, for a selected group of invitees. In this art fair the artists shared their networks and sparked new encounters.The invited guests were able to meet the artists themselves, which made the fair personal and lively. I sold two works; one of them is ‘Antilichaam’ that will be part of the AMC collection of UMC Amsterdam.

'The Last Summer' (150 x 200 cm. 2018) has been purchased by Stedelijk Museum Breda. This large drawing will have a permanent home in the museum's collection.
