Research Catalogue Profile:


BA Fine Art at HKU (NL) performance and video: un essay d'essayer

MA Artistic Research at UvA (NL): PER-FORM performative essay and essayistic performance 

MA Education in Art at Piet Zwart Institute (NL): Essaying Art, an unmethodological method for artistic research with the Practice tutorial Essayig Art online.

In my last MA thesis and educational project I used the performative space for essaying and a digital space for essaying. For the performative, I used the platform Café Chercher, an art café for sharing artistic research projects in an unfinished stage. For the online essaying, I used the platform of the Reseach Catalogue, the backbone of JAR, the peer-reviewed Journal of Artistic Research.

"I keep telling students that arranging your research, text, images differently on the Research Catalogue might change the way they do and form the research. But, i am starting this process myself made me realize that I could not do this online, I need physical papers, to cut, to tear, to place and replace."
