From a death man

In 2017, I authored the book From a Dead Man. In this dream, I created a manual! These non existing guidelines explore the life of Theo Masrakaba, a psychopath who predicted to be president of Suriname from 2025 to 2030 and die in 2037. 

When I met Theo he had developed several diaries to become “the negro bible”. I became inspired to perform for future leaders of Suriname. While interacting, I had combined Theo Masrakaba‘s predictions and my behavior as  Tumpi Flow (the part of my art practice as a performance persona). From a Dead Man reflects Tumpi’s performances and the diaries of Theo. It is this pursuit the book focus’ on participation based on the adage: ‘I’ do not exist.
