I was asked to create a work about refugees. This topic kept me busy for a long time, especially because I see this human drama day in and day out on TV and the internet and I am not doing anything about it. Okay, I’m gonna make an art piece about it...
Who am I to tell their story as a woman from, and in, a safe and wealthy country? Why is it up to me to speak about this drama as a Dutch artist? So, in a way it felt really wrong... The only way I can handle such a big theme is to take out one “small” part (with huge consequences) of this complex matter; I visualised dehumanisation in Some Place Better. I see dehumanisation in how refugees are presented and treated; hopefully I have contributed in a decent, honest an constructive way to this worldwide crisis.
