Through a self-guided process, mentoring by Arquetopia Foundation, and participation in artistic research programs, I am documenting my philosophy. A process that can be traced back to 2016, which I entitled PSYCHOMAMIO at that stage.
PSYCHOMAMIO refers to a non-existing manual. Through this ‘documentation machine’, I track knowledge. This metaphor is a tool to produce a psychological space in time. In Suriname mamio is a blanket created from remnants of fabrics: a kind of collage. This approach symbolizes a ‘communal factory’, in which the Other and I are together. Thus, my focus on tracking traces of time is through collaborations. In these coalitions, spaces emerges in which information – such as ideas, thoughts, feelings, expressions of joy and frustration, and individual convictions – is composed by physical and spiritual discourses. This way of social practice ‘walks’ simultaneously with contemporary art.
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 catastrophe?
