Artist in residence - Despina | Rio de Janeiro | Brasil

01/11/2017 - 30/11/2017  


In the month November I moved my studio to Rio de Janeiro for an art in residence program at Despina.  Last year I researched the elements that create a sense of home in my direct surroundings in the Netherlands. Working at Despina I was separated from my everyday belongings and therefore forced to search for other ways to feel at home. Luckily Rio was full of colours!



Thuis - new work by Britt Dorenbosch | Centraal Museum | Utrecht
9/9/2017 - 26/11/2017

In 2017 I worked, with support of the K.F. Hein Fonds,  on a new series of paintings and drawings. In this series I researched what creates a sense of home. What are the elements that make you feel at home? And how important are memories in this process? The research resulted the exhibition Thuis (at home).

I wrote two blogs about my research and process after winning the K.F. Hein Art Stipend. Read them here and here (in Dutch)



Art Rotterdam - Prospects & Concepts | Monderiaan Fund
09/02/2017 - 12/02/2017 

In 2015 I received a Stipendium for Emerging Artist, hence my work was part of the exhibition Prospects & Concepts at Art Rotterdam. The Mondriaan Fund asked Stijn Huijts, artistic director of the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, to curate the exhibition. Works of over sixty young artists were shown, varying from painting to photography, from objects to installations and from video to performances. I showed the first results of my research on feeling at home.

K.F. Hein Art Stipend

Yes!! I won the K. F. Hein Art Stipend 2017 with my sketch design 'Thuis'. The jury was impressed by my very personal research proposal that yet allows the public to feel connected to the subject. Coming year I will be researching the concept of feeling at home through painting and drawing. The results will be shown autumn 2017 in the Nieuw Utrecht Kamers at the Central Museum Utrecht.
