The exhibition, Document, is a solo show of my work at FotoGalerie Objectief at the invitation of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Enschede (AKI). The gallery space fits the work beautifully, allowing for quiet contemplative viewer engagement, exactly as the work was intended to be seen.

The exhibition was opened by Anke Weeda, the new Dean of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, who gave a wonderful, well researched speech.
The opening night gave me a wonderful opportunity to chat to students as well as local people.
I was delighted to meet photographer Hans Bol at the opening. We have had some conversations by email so it was great to speak to him in person. I also met Martha Haveman and Karel Betman of Galerie Beeld & Aambeeld at the opening and was invited to meet them in their gallery the morning before I left. They have lots of Irish connections as they work closely with the Crafts Council of Ireland, Kilkenny design and they represent the Cork artist Billy Foley.
Document continues at Fotogalarie Objectief, Enschede until 28th April 2012.
