At the Dak’art Biennale I will present my multimedia installation “Presence in Absence” at the Residency of the Dutch Embassy in Fann Residence, Dakar. The opening is on Thursday May 8 at 17.30 and the exhibition is running till May 18.

‘Presence in Absence’ is a reality that many migrants and their families are facing in both Europe and Africa. Families are being separated for many years and as a result of undocumented status often not capable to travel back. People are holding on to memories, tangible in the form of photos; carried with them or present in the privacy and intimacy of their (bed-)rooms.
