My works currently 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 reseach & practice I combine storytelling and commentary and translate them into performances, installations, paintings and sculptures. In a playful, poetic yet critical way my works question social-political issues, cultural vs institutional structures and suggest dialogue.
