view of the presentation for the Prix de Rome Sculpture 1992
in my studio at the Rijksakademie Amsterdam
left: 'niké'
in the back 'orgaoo' and 'blindfold'

this prize was in effect my coming out into the art world,
therefore, i chose stiff bridal satin as the main material
and made 7 pieces in this shiny textile, skin-colour on the inside and blueish white outside...

balanced by 2 works in clay,
my first two ceramic works ever: 'balling' and 'blindfold'
i won the First Prize

other work made during this working period: 'pose and untitled' 1992 (satin) > 'pose position' 1992/1997 (photo) /
