Can I go to live with you in your country?

Size: 160 * 130 cm.
This is a work that uses the technique of quilt and collage. There is a mix of tropical and warm textiles. The map of The Netherlands is embroidered in the quilt, and on top of it the words: "Can I go to live with you in your country?" are embroidered. It has a reference to the Surinam and African migration to The Netherlands. There is a play of significance between territory defined in the map and the fabric that also refers to diverse transnational commerce. It is associated to all the international transactions of goods and people, the desire to define new territories, and also the need to explore new spaces in the company of a trusted or beloved person.
