EXHIBITION | Koen Theys - Diasporalia | 15 FEB. - 13 SEP. 2020

DRENTS MUSEUM | Brink 1, 9401 HS Assen (NL) |

3 JUN. - 19 AUG. 2018 |

Diasporalia, which was commissioned by the Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp for the Year of the Baroque 2018, is reflecting about the current refugee crisis: 12 unique refugee beds, complete with personal belongings, made entirely out of bronze.

The sleeping refugees are missing from the scene, and it’s through their absence that we unavoidably confronted with their identities. We only have the little remnants of a life in transit and our own imagination and empathy to imagine the personalities, feelings and struggles behind them.
