Back in the days. Over 10 yrs ago I was send to court for my project with hamsters. Since then things got weirder (and maybe more interesting) every day.

ONE YEAR TINKEBELL. FOUNDATION‼️‼️‼️
En zó blij met deze backup! Een groot deel van mijn werk in het afgelopen jaar is al mogelijk gemaakt door deze stichting: www.tinkebellfoundation.nl
Twee keer hebben we nu een speciaal event voor insiders georganiseerd (derde volgt in december), de club vrienden van de stichting groeit gestaag (yayy!) en de eerste donateurs hebben deze zomer een kunstwerk gekregen. 
En yess, je kan aanhaken!! Heel graag zelfs!! Want daarmee maak je mede mogelijk dat ik mijn werk kan doen!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🏽 (check de website voor meer info!)
😱😀‼️‼️(—> scroll for more!) Me, being a fan of AQUA goes way back to the time when I was still in artschool. I planned to take over the world and paint it pink. so I was dressed in pink every day and I only ate pink food. Also, I assumed everybody wanted to become 'a TINKEBELL.' (me!) and for that you had to become a member of the AQUA fan club. Every week I made around hundred 'boomerang' cards which I spread in artschool. Some of them had very clear messages and explanations on how to become a REAL TINKEBELL.
I know that many students collected these cards and this is how some of them still have a collection of early artworks made by me. ;)
This past weekend AQUA came to the Netherlands for the first time in 15 years(!!) and it was the first time ever that I got the chance to see them perform live. THEY WERE #AMAZING!! like, for real. Their live performance was truly #STUNNING! And best of all I was standing front row (with my dear friend @elfivoermans whom I know from the time AQUA had their first hit!) and when they performed their fantastic song BACK TO THE 80'S , 
THEY LET ME ON STAGE!!!!
No words for the amazingness. this was just FREAKIN COOL!! Thank you @lenenystrom , @officialrenedif and @sorenrasted . YOU ROCK‼️‼️‼️ PS the few 'boomerang' cards that are left are available/for sale at @torchgallery
This one is on special request @bea_correa_ (following the strict rules on nudity in insta posts, I covered some parts)
These two works are the only ones still available in this series. Size: 65x48 cm and 95x67 cm

In the year 2011 I published a book 'For Your Pleasure'. The book contains images of a series of works that show girls that just turned 18 years old, but look a lot younger than they are. The origin of these images is a website with 'barely 18 teen porn' where people (men) pay for footage in which you can see how every day another girl gets beaten up. This is legal and it's popular. The girls posing for these photos get paid for it. But one could ask oneself: why would an 18 year old girl want to let herself beat up for money? How free of choice is she? Doing this all for your pleasure. 
I downloaded the images, printed them on canvas and made embroideries that overlapped these photos which made them look innoncent and sweet. By doing this I created a contrast between the feeling you get when you first look at it and the actual image.

The book (numbered and signed, there are 1000 copies) is still available. (just a few copies left) cost: €25,- shipping in NL is free / other countries €6,- Language English.

😀😀😀🙏🏽☢️💕 Short book reviews that make my day!!
Yes. Friendship is sor sale. (well, in some cases 🙄) —> www.tinkebellfoundation.nl 💕💕💕
It’s been six yrs already since I visited #Manila. When we talk about the #heat here, it’s nothing compared to the heat there. (it went up to 45 degrees celcius) Not to mention the #floods that came after/during these heats. The old part of Manila was flooded (thats where I was staying since I usually don’t plan anything when I travel except for the tiny little detail that I look up where the poorest neighborhood is located and that’s always the place where I stay because that’s the way to get to learn about a city) Anyway. during the floods the water was approx 1.2 meter high in my neighborhood. This water was #superwarm and the only way to leave my hotel was to go into the water. Which I did, several times. (Yes. I got #infected by some creepy #bacteria which made me sick for a month but it was totally worth it) What struck me most was that because of the heat the water dried quickly (after a day) and then the water came back, then it dried, then floods etc. 
If something like that would have happened here it would be called a huge #disaster. But there. life just went on. 
Water or no water. Heat or no heat. 
I call that #strength and that’s the main feeling I have about the #Philippines.
FRONT PAGE! 😱
Back in the days, we went. Just randomly walked into my very first boyfriend from 24 yrs ago (!!) My plan for tonight was to work (lots) but it ended in hours of sharing memories. Love you @freekvoermans and love seeing who you became after all this time. So proud of you!! ❤️❤️❤️
I’m gonna frame this newspaper. 🙏🏽❤️❤️❤️ Such a relief and so happy for you guys ✨✨✨💕@lilistar_official @howick_h_033
De kinderen gaan vanaf nu #opzwart

Why do we like some animals - even see them as part of our families - and others not? I think the answer mainly lies in our capability of humanizing an animal. If we can imagine ourself that a certain animal has a character, feelings, a gender etc etc. our brain tells us: this is a human being. And when it is small, has big eyes and it's fluffy, we see it as a little baby. So, so far for a short lesson in psychology in how we emphatise with (some) animals.
Well, what if you change this? What happens when you change the looks of an animal that (in our eyes) usually has no personality, no feelings and 
no gender? In my project SAVE THE SNAILS I did just that. and guess what happened...
People wanted to 'resque' the snails. Stole snails out of the exhibitions. Started petitions. Wrote articles on how cruel it was to use animals for a piece of art. - Did all kind of things to protect the exact same animals as they would usually poisen when found in their gardens. —> for the record. no animals were harmed in here. I used special glue and light weight materials. None of the snails bothered their new looks. 
They just kept on being snails. The only difference was that people started to see them as 'persons' and with that, people felt that THESE snails could never be killed. So yes, I saved the snails by changing the way people saw them. -

Ik vroeg @romanavrede : is er iets wat je graag zou willen? Een onderwerp, een haakje waar dan in Zomergasten over doorgevraagd kan worden? (..) Met een big smile keek ze me aan(..) “Wat ik heel graag zou willen is dat je me een brief schrijft” 
Ze dicteerde: “Ik wil graag van je weten. Van je leren. Hoe volg jij je hart? Hoe volg jij je hart als je alle kennis, al het nieuws en alle wetenschap hebt meegenomen? Hoe moet ik vegetarier worden? Liefhebben? Hoe kan je blue blijven? Kinderlijk blijven terwijl je intellectueel bent? Hoe kan je dat terwijl je weet dat de wereld vergaat? Hoe blijf je Alice in Wonderland? Wat moet ik doen om me niet te laten opslurpen door leegte? En moet ik melancholie incorpereren? Ik wil graag steentjes op slakken blijven plakken, hoe doe ik dat? Waarom maak je het leven mooier, de hele tijd. En hóe, Katinka?”
People would protest if this were caged dogs. WTF IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD!
Birthday with my superpowergirlfriends @azelinskie @michdulce @svansaarloos and #VivianSong ❤️❤️❤️
So, last week when I arrived in NY to attend the #earthwedding of my dear friend @azelinskie whom I met 7 years ago when I did a residency in NY I knew that @svansaarloos from #Amsterdam just had moved to #NY so I already planned to catch up with her. And then, when I posted a facebook update on being here, my friend #VivianSong from #Shanghai whom I met in #China, also 7 years ago, texted me that she had also moved to NY. One day later I saw a photo on the instagram account of @michdulce , whom I met 6 years ago in the #Philippines, in which she mentioned to be in the exact neighborhood in Brooklyn as I am. 
So I texted all these #girls - whom are, by the way, the most #amazing #superpowergirlfriends I have collected during my #travels in the past years - to get them all together. Which happened last night!! No need to say that we had a blast and kept on talking and I'm warning you all here: you are gonna hear from us. Because so much connected #superpower can be a #worldchanger!! - oh and my dear Ashley bought me a #birthday #cake and everybody sang to me!! 😀✨🎉❤️❤️❤️
@azelinskie threw me a birthdayparty in New York!!! 🎉 Oh, and we celebrated her spacewedding with @pxdelaney 😍 🎉🎉🎉💕💕💕💕💕💕
Today. Brought a visit to Jan Hak. Apparently it's not just 'de groente van hak' - but a whole ecosystem van Hak. I got fresh honey (de honing van Hak), went to a biological baker and cuddled these pigs. 😍😍😍
Good vibes with @ericvantijn @adam_toren ❤️❤️❤️
