Trailer Costa Mediterranea

Last week the Costa Mediterranea docked in Amsterdam. This is the cruise ship on which I made my latest work which will be on show at Melkweg Expo from 23rd of June – 30th of July.





I photographed for Annual report AFK

For the annual report of Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) I created images that depict a selection of different initiatives, projects and persons who received a grant for their activities. The picture above is a self-portrait.


Beeldspread Dit is Nederland / Vrij Nederland

De Nederlandse Keuken
De aardappel is de basis van de Nederlandse keuken, het middelpunt van het universum. Daarnaast is vooral gemak belangrijk. In andere landen staat men graag de hele dag in de keuken voor een verjaardag, in Nederland is de gemengde prikker met kant-en-klare hapjes bij wijze van traktatie vaste prik.


Dysfunctional Matters II / Redefining Desire @ Corrosia, Almere

For the group exhibition Dysfunctional Matters II / Redefining Desire at Corrosia I created a new installation titled Overlook. 

The other artists are: Roos Quakernaat, Suzie van Staaveren & Afra Eisma and Casper Braat.

You can visit the exhibition until the 20th of May 2017. For more information about opening hours and guided tours, click here.



Costa Mediterranea is selected for the Monographic Photopaper magazine

PHOTOPAPER states they present outstanding photographic work nominated by international experts in the field, so I’m very happy to be nominated by Erik Kessels. 

“Annegien van Doorn is one of the biggest talents in Holland at the moment. She has a perfect eye for the ordinary and is able to turn this into the extra-ordinary in her images. Her work has a performative character, which also shows in the installations she makes of her work. In costa mediterranea she explores the (sur)reality of everyday life on a cruise ship, capturing the feeling of alienation she had when she found herself in the middle of the ocean, trapped in a neoclassical décor mixed with cheap looking hotel-like elements and a constant lack of privacy. Sometimes she interfered with reality, but often reality itself was more than enough to create intriguing images. The combination of photography, performance and installation creates a breath of fresh air, which is important in a time where a lot of work starts to look-alike.”
