My last exhibition, ‘Husker Du’ – do you remember? was in September 2013, a part of Culture Night. I have a time-lapse already made of the night when over 100 guests filled my small home and took part in ‘The Human Orchestra’.

Based On Real Events is the next piece, following on from my exhibitions Yamé, The Red Swan Hotel, (no-relation), Waiting Room, Near Vinyl Dead Cassette, Heistland, Husker Du.
