Prix de Rome 2009
We love our refugees
Wood, foamboard, paint and reeds
4 x 3 x 2 m
In 2009, as part of my selection for the Prix de Rome, I made this cabin in the Zuiveringshal, where art institution De Appel temporarily was based in. The cabin was a sculptural interpretation of a cabin that failed refugees had squatted near my studio at the time. The reed that originally surrounded that cabin was installed inside my work.
