paper, slippers, chalk
This work is an art installation with black slippers referring to the average 'Jan met de pet' of Curaçao. The slippers on the back have dates written on them, dates of the death of people who got sick from pollution. In a way it's a crime scene, but how much crime scene investigations has been really done? How much more years can the pollution freely continue? Each death caused by the pollution of ISLA, is one too much.
