Hotel Savoy, WET, Hillevliet, Rotterdam, 2022 - publication Hotel Savoy —alongside the video installation it accompanies—is an attempt to symbolically ‘get inside’ the 1918 novel Hotel Savoy, by the Austrian writer Joseph Roth. It is also an attempt to enter the hotel itself, described by Roth in the book, and filmed by me in the present day: the choice to depict the same place from a distance of a hundred years allowing me to see the parallels between the two realities. The novel is an elegy for a Europe which was disintegrating and aggregating into small nation states, in which the author could no longer find himself; Roth did not see himself as an Austrian Jew, but as a citizen of the multicultural Habsburg Empire stretching from Vienna to the edge of Russia. On his way back from the front of the First World War, Roth stayed at the eponymous hotel in Lódz, my home town, and encountered the flotsam of Europe at its most existential.

Imagine Preference - Wild Summer of Art, Brutus, Rotterdam, 2022. A piece of fabric dipped in a porcelain clay after firing process becomes a hyper realistic solid copy of what previously was a textile piece. Mostly women were hired in the textile factories, struggling in close to no labor rights. Now Lódz, formerly known as s city of textile magnates glamorizes its industrial past, omitting the often very difficult work conditions.

Peach @W139

Locatie: W139
In samenwerking met: Sabrina Chou, Hunter Longe, Ghislain Amar, W139

For the duration of one month, W139 was PEACH — the apartment and artist-run space normally located at Grondherendijk 9b, Oud Charlois, Rotterdam. The exhibition offered a personal look upon the community and ethos of PEACH. It was an explosion of the domestic. Both a physical caricature of the original apartment, highlighting the qualities of familiarity and intimacy found in a home, as well as a continuation of Peach's role as host.
