Maarten things to do
The thesis will be practice based. It will do justice to my graduation project which I will develop over the coming months and will finally be displayed in Tent Rotterdam. I will try to contextualise my practice by looking at my previous work, work of other contemporary artist and within a broader art historical context. I will focus on topics that concern me such as transmission to which I believe there is a real quality to the practice, which is that it morphs as it goes through different instalments and operates across different media. Furthermore, I will write about archiving, collecting, objectification, and the performative aspect of my work. The performances I do every two weeks in a local bar in the North of Rotterdam will be the foundation of the graduation project along with the archive I produce. In the graduation work I will function as a vessel, a box in which everything is possible and different worlds and potential worlds come together in a narrative.
