Residentie United Cowboys – January-April 2021
Since mid-January I have been in residence at Arthouse United Cowboys in Eindhoven, in one of the workspaces in the Arthouse. During a working period of three months, new sculptures were created from found materials, the sculptures play the leading role in films and performance material. The sculptures act as props, set pieces and antagonists, creating new environments, movements and combinations.
A public presentation, as planned on 1 and 2 May, can because of the Covid restrictions not take place. That is why I make a digital presentation to conclude this residency period. This will include process images, film images of performances and an essay about my work written by Linda Köke. (I will publish the digital presentation at the beginning of May)

Social Aspects #9, Derde Wal Nijmegen
During ‘Social Aspects’ Verrijt considered the public space as his decor, where he created new scenes and environmental collages. A search for the tension between the ordinary and the unusual, the everyday and the deviant. A way of confronting the public space with unusual participants in the street. Projects in which he appropriated the public outdoor space as decor, where social interventions take place with his mobile installations and rituals.
Project made possible by: Gemeente Nijmegen, Provincie Gelderland, Stichting Stokroos, Mondriaan Fonds.
artist-in-residence AVL Mundo, July-August 2020
During the residency at AVL Mundo Verrijt worked on a series of installations, performances and made film scenes. New ‘scenes’ in which Verrijt creates his own archetypes.
AVL Mundo has been hosting an Artist-in-Residence Program since 2017. This summer I am one of the two artist that are invited to create at AVL Mundo. I create three-dimensional collages at various locations, the collages will come together in a new installation. Made possible by @mondriaanfonds
‘Many thanks to Mondriaan Fonds for the Stipendium for Emerging Artists!!!’
