MUSEUM FOR CONTEMPORARY ART
Tilburg The Netherlands
Site specific installation ‘ROLIHLAHLA’ (meaning ‘creating disquiet’ and the birth name of Nelson Mandela).
Enormous portraits of mainly smiling prominent world leaders, hanging upside down on steel cables, filling a space at De Pont museum of Contemporary Art – Tilburg, The Netherlands. The work consists of four black Nobel peace prize winners (Nelson Mandela – Wangari Maathai – Desmond Tutu – Kofi Anan) and the white activist Michael Moore. From an entirely new position, the onlooker is asked to enter a different environment, and perception.
