Through a self-guided process, mentoring by Arquetopia Foundation, and participation in artistic research programs, I have been documenting a pedagogy. A process that can be traced back to 2016, entitled PSYCHOMAMIO at that stage. PSYCHOMAMIO refered to a non-existing manual.
In Suriname mamio is a blanket created from remnants of fabrics: a collage. Through this ‘communal factory’, I encounter the Other and track time and knowledge. A process I consider to be my collaboration ‘machine’ and just my way of social practice. It ‘walks’ simultaneously with contemporary art – composed of physical and spiritual discourses.
This concept is transformative power. A change to deal with geopolitical issue such as Covid-19. To understand the ‘postnormal’, the concept From A Dead Man and the process COUP 22 are time and space that help me within the complexities of networks. In fact, I am fascinated by the power relation of capitalism and democracy.
I spontaneously imagine and methodologically create through rituals of reflection, asking: How come democracy – regardless of whether it goes left or right, down or up – ends up in a capitalism?
