SHEMACHO – I challenge I at De Hal in Paramaribo (SR) was co-curated with Kurt Nahar. The conversation took place between December 21 – 24, 2012, with artists encountered during a curatorial workshop by Dutch Design a few weeks before. As reflective process, this manifestation challenged the relationship between identity and image as invitation to see the world through the eyes of EdKe and Ezinomrah (both as my persona’s) in which expression belong to Time and Space as manifestations of Spirit.

I believe that a focus on extremes is not only an urge, but an inner strength. However, this strength is weak in my philosophy. Your image of me and my identity are guiding this focus. This notion is a struggle, to find harmony between I and I related to the argument: “Perfection is worth pursuing but not my intention. To stir divine and evil, my nature relates to cultures of imperfection that exist in every vibration of in life. Therefore, those who are open to see, are able to experience both god and its shadow.”
