UNTITLED from the Forked Tongue serie

14-21 november 2021 Malta
My work UNTITLED, a non narrative moving image about threat and the unexpected is selected for the ‘Forked Tongue’ a serie curated by Madison Bycroft for Theoneminutes
The Forked Tongue includes ten one minute videos that move in two directions, are ambivalent, layered, and in between. Repetitions, translations, and bifurcated histories proliferate, as do restless characters performing multiple gestures, unanchored, and never still. These works evade a single sense. Instead of containing things within specified boundaries or capacities a space opens for multiplicity and ambiguity.
The selected videos were sent in from Australia, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Turkey and United Kingdom

Bring Your Own Beamer

23 Nov - 23 Nov 2019 Amsterdam
On Saturday November 23rd Upstream Gallery hosts, in collaboration with Rafaël Rozendaal, a Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB).
BYOB is a series of one-night-exhibitions where (media-) artists are invited to show their work on their own projectors. BYOB is an international concept initiated by artist Rafaël Rozendaal, which allows artists to fill a space with projections for one night. Everything is permitted, as long as it is projected. The BYOB will be held at Upstream Gallery, in Rozendaal's solo exhibition Discrete Objects that opens the night before. Artists in and around Amsterdam will be invited to show work. More info on BYOB here.

BOEKIE WOEKIE books by artists

from depicting to imagining, from traditional to digital


The starting point for this book is one photo. Westrate photographs exclusively with mobile phone cameras. The first six prints were edited with felt-tip pen, then the same photo was digitally edited on the computer. The book consists of fifty images, in an edition of ten numbered copies. Two more books follow in this series: in the second book the starting point is felt-tip pen drawings that are digitally edited. In the third book the works originate on the computer, designed from the imagination.

For Westrate, digital working opens up new possibilities for expression: "Digital technology is just as fast as my imagination". The variations of imagination are endless. You can work immediately and spontaneously. Westrate works with simple techniques, both digital and traditional.
