What famous artist would you like to be friends with?
Pipilotti Rist, because she is fun, intelligent and a brilliant artist! Actually I already met her in Rotterdam two years ago when she was building up ‘Het Leven Verspillen Aan Jou’ at Boijmans van Beuningen and we have stayed in touch since. I imagine someday we will hang out at Madurodam.
If there’s one museum in the world you could live in, which one would you choose?
Z33 in Hasselt. I am part of their group-show. The staff members are really great and involved so I could imagine that they would make good roommates and great breakfast. I also love the architecture, and during the buildup we had mouthwatering Lebanese food from the restaurant next door. I could also live in Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona, Italy; they have a beautiful sinister art collection, and the museum feels like a historic castle with minimalist Japanese architectural additions, with a garden and a view over the river and enough space to have workshops, and studio spaces and great parties.
How did you decide on the series of works you will show at UNFAIR23?
I often work with sound, movement and storytelling in large solo presentations. In the context of this fair I’m more limited in space, sound- and lighting-conditions. I’m actually quite excited by this as I’ll be re-inventing my practice for UNFAIR. I hope I can still catch the attention of the visitor in the middle of 60 solo presentations.
