ASANTE SANA (…thank you..) lovely Dar Es Salaam audience for visiting the vernissage of [Context, Gravity, Expressions] It was a real pleasure to see such a big turnout.
… and endless gratitude to Anoek De Smet (pic below): hardly any electricity and hardly any internet (even minutes before the opening) made it all extra challenging. But it’s your great ideas and your perseverance that made this audio visual exhibition possible even in the most difficult circumstances. So thanks again for inviting me into this unique project and to make my long-time dream to collaborate with Nicholas Calvin turn into reality.
BIG THANK you also to Alliance Française Dar Es Salaam for allowing us to inhabit your beautiful space for a short while. And special thanks to the generous support of the Belgian Embassy in Dar Es Salaam.

opening in two days on 15.09.2015 – 6.30pm AFDAR, Dar Es Salaam (TZ)
Just back home from touring the USA , but already moving on to a new exhibition project in Dar Es Salaam, which will feature new photography and video work by Nicholas Calvin, Tanzanian visual artist. I will reinterpret Nicholas Calvin’s visuals and create several new sound installations from it. To premiere my very first sound installations in Tanzania means a lot to me: all the inspiration I got from several travels in East Africa over more than a decade, now will finally find its way back to East Africa
