I touch things so I can feel them



BLOGGING MY OBSERVATIONS, AND WORKING PROCESS.
AFTER THE PROJECT IN ZLIN (CZ), I WENT TO GREECE,
WHERE AT THIS MOMENT, I AM WORKING ARROUND THE HOLY MT OLYMPUS,
INVESTIGATING THE MOUNTAIN AND ITS SURROUNDINGS.

Mount Olympus is many mountains in one

I have been around this mountain Olympus now for three weeks and I can’t seem to grasp the shape of it. It’s not cone shaped or does not have a very clear other shape.

Its more like a big, 3000 meter high, lump of rocks to me, with many pointy tops.

Driving around it gives a totaly different perspective every few seconds and I have been trying to figure out what exactly is the highest peak since I have been here.

I feel like this mountain is a bit playing around with me. Saying to me; ‘Hey you think you can come here and make a project about how Holy I am, by trying to figure out my shape?’ ‘Goodluck, I am a thousand shapes in one’.

This trying to grasp the mountain, makes me a bit restless and at the same time I like it, because it keeps me awake and busy.

Let’s see where this goes..

Just looking at this land at the foot of Mt Olympus. Its old. People have been living here for thousands of years. Looking at the same see and the same mountain. I wonder if everything that happened here, maybe got soacked up in the ground?

Mt Olympus, Pieria Greece 29 march 2014


Our human presence, its my main subject in my work. Looking at us and my own presence in this world, in this time on this planet. I love this subject, I love to observe people, what we do, where we go, how we leave our marks.
And jet, at this very moment I am so very enoyed by the couple in the room next to me, making love all the time. View Larger

Our human presence, its my main subject in my work. Looking at us and my own presence in this world, in this time on this planet. I love this subject, I love to observe people, what we do, where we go, how we leave our marks.

And jet, at this very moment I am so very enoyed by the couple in the room next to me, making love all the time.


After my exhibition in Zlin we arrived at Mt Olympus Greece, where ill be staying for the next two and a half months. Working and living on the slopes of a Holy mountain. Together with my partner Gertjan.

Going away, traveling, making art, its great and I would not want to have it any other way. But there is always another side to everything. And I am experiencing this at this moment.

I dont feel I have space..
There is plenty of space outside, I mean, I am on a beautifull mountain..
But my living space is small. And also the space in my mind. The village is an old medieval village with funny stone brick houses. These bricks somehow took over my head. And I feel I can’t seem to go anywhere but up or down the Mountain.

I feel a bit locked up.

Inside and Outside not in ballance jet.
