DILUTION IN DEN DOLDER, 2015, C-Print on Hahnemuhle paper, 75x50cm each.

From January until the end of March 2015 I lived and worked together with Marieke van Rooy and our two kids in the artist in residency Het Vijfde Seizoen, on the grounds of the mental health care institute Willem Arntz Hoeve/Altrecht in Den Dolder (nearby Utrecht). The project paid attention to the actual reform of the Dutch health care in relation to the participatie maatschappij, by researching the heritage and actuality of Nieuw Dennendal. This was a radical experiment for the mental health care in the Seventies by the psychologist Carel Muller and took place on the terrain where Het Vijfde Seizoen is located.

The project was supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
