Dood Gewoon | Dead Simple
A unique visualization of the theme death
1 art installation
In Dood Gewoon | Dead Simple I collaborate with my parents Winfried Scholz and Alida Verheij.
We have created an installation in which each artist individually explores what the theme death is to them and how they interact about it with each other through the medium sculptural art, painting and spatial design.
The installation invites you to experience our visual dialogue about death and to start your own conversation.
Come and join us!

My newest film OFFSET is selected for the 2019 London Short Film Festival!
Can’t wait to see all the great programs between the 11 – 20th January 2019.
A big thank you to LSFF for selecting my film and a special thank you to the two incredible woman who made this film with me: Cassie Kinoshi for her strong soundtrack and Kathrin Gramelsberger for her strong performance.
OFFSET There is no guidebook on how to survive the agonising hurricane of pain when you find your most intimate self betrayed. Trapped between walls of pain, you try to fight your way out. How much of the pain do you need in order to survive, what time do you get to test the truth of your expectations and how much do you let yourself be told of what is right? In fight for breath, love balances us sharply on hopes blade.
I was in luck to score the last ticket to this film double bill on Saturday 22 February in London, which ended with a live satellite Q&A with Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin and Sophie Kennedy Clark.
This movie is an open conversation. A book with a simple story line and many chapters that invite you to enter the world of Joe. Documentary and fiction style grip you in their frames, frames that switch from 16:9 to 4:3 and more. It also contains collage, still image and multi staging, making it into a minefield for the senses, since you find yourself completely opened up by the inviting rhythm and speed of the movie.
Addressed in this movie are art, femininity, humor, society, lust, masculinity, jealousy, music, love, asexuality, stigma’s, fishing and choices.
No, it is not a porn movie. No, it is not a feminist movie.
Yes, it is a intriguing story, told with a great sense of humor and detail.
