I am a musician in various bands and also perform solo. We play background music, swing, folk music, and a variety of genres on multiple instruments.
An installation is the combination of a work and its surroundings. Often, it consists of various materials in which the environment is part of the message: it is the whole that matters.
I live and work in the Netherlands (everything about The Netherlands: www.ainp.nl) and I write in my native language – Dutch. I’ve made this English-language version for visitors who don’t speak or read Dutch but still may be interested in my work.
In 2012, 2013 and 2014 I am the official city-poet of Wageningen.
I do have other activities besides playing music and writing poetry. For instance, I’m an old-time vehicle enthusiast and fulfil a number of social functions, including that of free-lance public information officer on UNESCO.
