Very exciting news!!! e c h o | 19 – 20 November | my new sonic and visual installation in collaboration with composer Cassie Kinoshi will be presented at Kings Place as part of London Unwrapped CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS
“Experience echo, the new immersive film installation from long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi (Artist in residence for London Unwrapped) and visual artist Anne Verheij. The installation is a sonic and visual exploration of our connection with ourselves and each other in London.”
The fourth edition of Te Kijk Gezet is now on display @ Koningsstraat 6, Amsterdam. A collaboration between @AVWS-artwork and myself.
Tegen de Zwaartekracht [Defying Gravity] This 4th edition of Te Kijk Gezet is the latest result of the ongoing conversation about letting go, in which the artists research their family bond and age difference. Defying Gravity is a spatial design by Anne in which she provides a third of the space for each artist to use. Visual layers are created by horizontal planes that both take and create space. An exciting relation between the works reveals itself by putting them in this framed context. The three artworks play with the recognition and denial of material, composition and expectations.
Cassie Kinoshiand I are excited to announce that our new collaboration echo can be seen on 19 and 20 November at Kings Place London as part of London Unwrapped.
Experience echo, the new immersive film installation from long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi (Artist in residence for London Unwrapped) and visual artist Anne Verheij. The installation is a sonic and visual exploration of our connection with ourselves and each other in London.
Filmed entirely using handheld cameras, echo is an immersive audio-visual triptych with London as its main character. Day to day experiences of London life are manipulated through exploratory editing and camera movement, creating an encapsulating visceral experience of the ever changing cityscape.
echo’s electro-acoustic score was created with field-recordings captured around London; familiar sounds of trains, crowds, park life and traffic are altered and re-conditioned into the unfamiliar. Blended with synthesisers, a string quintet formed from members of Chineke! Ensemble were recorded to provide ethereal textures. These samples further elevate an evocative sound world that emulates the ever-changing experience of existing in the transformative city of London.
” The programme brings together Chiaki Nagano and Takahiko Iimura’s collaborations with butoh pioneers Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. Connecting these works to present-day conceptions of movement, society, and technology is In Passing. “

By the end of October 2014 I started a research project with choreographer Miku Tsuchiya. The process consisted out of four makers intensives on four different locations throughout the UK in which spatial composition, dance, painting, movement and film were explored. The flow was enticing and the footage was rich. Consistency and style began to form out of two different disciplines, dance and visual art, bringing it to a new level in which exploration and intuition became the leading roles of this collaboration. Central to this research is the use of the digital canvas as our main tool.
When in December 2014 Miku moved back to Japan, we became well aware that in this digital age boundaries are relative when it comes to distance. Since we have landed in the next step of our work process, the digital step, we have decided to collaborate from opposite ends of the world.
From this day we will log the process of our collaboration onto this blog as a support for the work being created through theory and practice.
Concept Working title: ‘ONES’
This autumn I am researching dance and film with choreographer and dancer Miku Tsuchiya. In this collaboration we let a chosen location influence and challenge both our views and work methods to come to a new image that combines dance and film as one.
These photo’s are a sneak peek into our current work process.
