In Between Homes, 2017 - ongoing

 

In Between Homes emerged from the ongoing visual research in Delfshaven, for which I travel with my neighbours to their countries of origin. The first journey was with Rino Alvarez, to his home country Curaçao in 2017. The second trip was a year later with Silas Khalipha, to his native village Coffee Bay in South Africa.

 

It is a fantastic and intimate experience to travel to an ‘unknown’ country with a ‘buurman’ as your guide. With this project, I want to deepen my knowledge about my neighbours in terms of their cultural backgrounds, in order to highlight contemporary migration issues.

 

This project is ongoing, I want to visit more countries with my neighbors. Currently I am developing forms of presentation. I used the images in a visual narrative, combined with recorded ambient sounds and interviews.
