Freaks – 2010-2012.
Pencil drawings on paper with wall-paper.
A series of drawings of special people. A lot of them are based on photographs of artists who performed at the circuses at the beginning of the last century. They show the so called Freaks in all their power and beauty. They have recreated themselves and made their deviance of the norm into their strength. This series is about respect: for yourself, the others and life itself.
In 2011 these drawings were used in the exhibition / installation ‘In the woods’ at Galerie Ververs, Amsterdam.
