Relocating myself from the environment of a modern transitional society, from which I am coming, helped me to select the developed adaptive skills of a current time that are built on individual levels, but because of their multiplicity and, more often, mutual compatibility built a mass phenomenon. The group of works addressed as Homewards represents the latest produced works based on selected relations to home, heritage and immaterial values that in the same spirit, through the personal examples reflect the collective functional behavior.

She exhibited on numerously regional and international exhibitions and festivals
The author as receiver
Robin Waart uses repetition and collecting as a framework for projects with books, movie stills, photography, polaroids, and book pages. His works raise questions about (dis)continuity, what it means to look at, or do, the same thing over and over. Focusing on the relationship between receiver and author, his projects address the reasons why, and for whom we make what we make.
CV: Robin Waart received his BA and MA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. Selected exhibitions: A sense of things to come (forthcoming), Bradwolff Projects, Amsterdam, 2018; Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 1989-2017 , Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, 2017; A minor state of flux , Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam, 2017, etc.
