In my graduation work I search for my sister, who is no longer with us. My sister, whom I don’t remember, but whom I’ve known for all my life.
My sister was born in November 1994. Although we only had a year together, although I don’t remember her, we have grown up together. She is present in the relations I have with others. She is present in the way we speak about, dream about and imagine her.
In this work I navigate between rooms and compare my position to my sister’s. I search for her in society. I search for her in the world of art and design. I search for her at Beckmans. My sister had Down syndrome and I daily notice that the rooms that are easily accessible for me, wouldn’t have been for her.
