When you pretend is that what you are becoming ?

happening

2023

The week after carnival 2023 Kunstpodium-T presented ‘Het Bloemetjesgordijn’; an exhibition that opposes the cheesy, vulgar and one-sided associations that might come to mind when hearing the title. In the similarly named song Wim Kersten asks himself "Weet je wat ik wel zou willen zijn?" (meaning: Do you know what I would like to be?). "A floral curtain", is his ambiguous reply.

In this exhibition Eva van de Sande, Katayoon Valamanesh, Mike Anna, myself and Dewi Bekker & Anouk van Klaveren, from Das Leben am Haverkamp, explored the complexity of becoming and wanting to be.

During the opening night I invited friends and family to wear garments by me, like celebrities wearing designer clothes to big events. Pretending I became the renowned fashion designer I dreamt of becoming when I was a teenager. The garments where made during my fashion studies form 2015 to 2017.

Before the guests left they changed back into their own clothes which could be found in the exhibition, tagged with the titles of the items they wore.
