uw hoer is een moeder (your whore is a mother): illustrated book on paper and mica ::: 2017 ///

(     )

for my bachelor's project i researched the red light district of antwerp (‘het schipperskwartier') in an attempt to challenge the way people generally view and marginalise sex workers. it resulted in a collection of anecdotes demonstrating the role of these women as mothers, daughters, lovers and friends, assembled in an illustrated book. winner of the START AWARD 2017

i had (have) the honour to collaborate with the amazing moldavian photographer olivia karlina. her series 'onions' depict the eerily sketchy scenes of aalst during carnaval.

i like love swastikas exposes the phenomenon of ‘cultural appropriation’. both sides of this polarising debate are represented in a conversation between two characters who discuss the appearance and behaviour of passersby. while one insists on pointing out specific forms of cultural appropriation, the other is completely oblivious to the general scope of the issue. their debate unfolds throughout the book, with characters moving through a landscape of articles and comments on social media concerning the subject. ultimately, i like love swastikas attempts to reconstruct the controversy and invites its readers to participate in the debate. winner of the swa beerten award 2018
