exiled taboos, 2006




a collaboration project with the people without papers from the kerkasiel, antwerp.

how to live when the land you were driven to is sliding away under your feet.
we met weekly for some months,
the more we painted, drew, talked,
the more their situation was getting tough

the more the softness of having teas together
imposed itself.
chattering
together

revolving into their past and present taboos
only revealed political pains, walls, impotence and sterile action.

their wounds need balm

produced by haven vzw and illegal beauty.
