' In search of the connection'

In these photographs you can see the series that I made during a journey through Iran, in search for the beginning of “our” civilization, I therefore have photographed landscapes where history was made. The mountains where I photographed “Valley of Alamut” were once the territory of the Assacijnen. The English word assassin comes from them so this does not say a lot for their practices. The routes of Kings run through the country, used yearly by Darius and his courtiers. He traveled three different routes. Skies, and figures from Persian paintings, point to their knowledge of both Chinese and Flemish paintings. Iran was on the crossroads of east and west at the time of the silk route, when not only goods but knowledge was exchanged. Open source. There is not a lot in the landscapes that gives any indication of this history, I have therefore placed “landmarks” to make these places special.

The photos are all printed on fine mat paper; giclee prints with archive ink a series of 5

'On pearls and seafoam', 2000, installation, Terschelling, NL

An installation in three elements, made of buoys with figures (polyester) 280cm, 150cm, 90cm on them. They are arranged in perspective, with the largest in front, making the sea seem even more infinite.Three spheres, each with a figure dancing in the surf, are tossed from sideto side, up and down. At high tide, the current tries to set them down onthe shore, and at low tide, it takes them back to sea again. But the spheresare anchored, so it doesn't work - they never touch down on land. They are pearls in seafoam. The figures on the pearls stand in a world of their own. They never reach their goal. They are beautiful and vulnerable, transient. They are foam, froth, intangible and violent.

'By numbers', 2000, installation, electrified wire, poles, calves, ear tags, Zijpe, NL

The calves graze the grass around the ‘anamorphosis’. A long-haired green cow arises from the grass inside, like a shadow image. When the wire is removed, the calves eat their own image in grass. ‘An anamorphose’, or perspective drawing is only fully perceived from a single point.

'HO HORSE: SLEEP WELL', 1999, willow branches, 20m x 30m x 2.5m, Terschelling, NL

Hoofprints in the sand suggest a presence, a moment in time. They are blown away or buried under the sand, leaving you to guess who passed here, how long ago, how big he was, how heavy....A horse lies resting at the foot of the dune. Is he at the end of his journey (as Tolstoy described in Yardstick)? A black horse, fully stretched out, built up of willow branches that are black or weathered grey. The sand continues to swirl and settle against the horse. Slowly, the horse disappears beneath the sand, eventually to become a new sand dune.The photographs on this page show the wind slowly shifting the horse under the sand, gradually creating a new sand dune.

'Shopping bag horses', 1998, measurements variable

A candlelight project. There are waxine tea candles in the paper bags. The shape of a horse has been cut out of the bag on the side facing the wall. As the candles flicker, the horses move. The sound of 30 galloping horses, coming and going, going and coming, thunders over you.
