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!
Presentation: september, 2022, NEXT, Stedelijk Museum Breda. i.c.w. kunstloc Brabant en Park Zuiderhout.

september 2022 series of drawings in Hollands Maandblad

The Hollands Maandblad is a literary magazine from the 1950s; the oldest in the Netherlands after de Gids (the Guide). "Where De Gids is now packaged in De Groene Amsterdammer, Hollands Maandblad is still independent. It is printed on beautiful paper and does not want to participate in the race to the bottom in which other magazines have already been drowned. Unlike other literary magazines, there has always been room for drawings. Not as an illustration, but as an independent medium. The drawings do exist throughout the magazine, but the relationship with the texts is purely coincidental. An autonomous selection of their own work is required from the artists." said Steven Boland, designer.

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.
