Marije Baalman will be presenting her installation Omhels andere gedachtes (Embrace other thoughts). In this installation, the stories of the local inhabitants of Steigereiland (IJburg, Amsterdam) are collected. In an intimate way the visitor can listen to the story of a neighbour: by embracing the mannequin with a custom-made poncho on it.
The installation was developed for the Week of Empathy at the invitiation of Nederland Wordt Beter and Alle Kleuren Oost. The event on Proefeiland is organised on May 2nd in collaboration with De Groene Gemeenschap.
