Ten meters of evidence
gelatin silver print, 127x1000cm, 2017
Ten meters of light-sensitive paper were exposed in a performative act in the dark room. For “Ten meters of evidence” I shot film, photographs and found objects that connect to the relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands. In and around Yogyakarta, Indonesia I searched for buildings that hold the visual evidence of the colonial past and photographed these buildings. The collection of images and objects were used in a choreography in the darkroom that resulted in the ten-meter long print.
“Ten meters of evidence” was shown at the NEU/NOW festival 2017 at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, NEU/NOW at Art Basel in 2018 and Big Art 2018 in the Bijlmer Bajes in Amsterdam.
