Blown out the first candle

Oct 2021 - Oct 2022

October 1st 2021, an online adventure started, asking befriended artists and designers if I could present a selection of their work on an online platform called CABINET39.

The name, combining CABINET - referring to the first cardboard used for photographic portraiture called cabinet cards and also to a filing cabinet where each drawer represents another 'discipline'; art, photography, design, print, craft and other hidden treasures... - with 39 - our house number.

One year later, CABINET39 went offline at multiple gallery for a period of two months, giving a face to the virtual and showing with joy and a bit of modest pride what one year of collaboration has yielded.

In these extremely uncertain and troubled times, it is a challenge to start a new project. But the stories of the artists, photographers, designers and crafts(wo)men released such a positive energy that it inspired to share a part of their work and what they stand for.

Therefore I wish to thank them all for having confidence in CABINET39, for being part of this insignificant but inspired project, I thank them for believing in what they do, in what they make and I thank them for sharing their passion with us.

So, thank you
