My works revolves around my upbringing in Curacao and the islands historical relationship with the Netherlands. Within my research I am constantly confronted with aspects of duality. Duality in themes of religion, education, social construct and identity. In my artistic practice I combine storytelling and commentary and translate them into performances, installations, paintings and sculptures. In a shamanistic, playful, poetic yet critical way my works question social-political issues, cultural vs institutional structures in which the spectator is challenged to recognise theirselves and perhaps question their own position.
