Uitverkoping/Sale 2009

Rusted metal, charcoal on paper, plastic, perspex and found material
4m x 3m x 2.3m

The installation Uitverkoping/Sale suggests the "selling out" of ordinary people who become victims of power abuse.

The "shop" with clothes become a monument. The stack of shoe boxes reminds of a memorial wall and the charcoal drawings in plastic sleeves of body bags. The "fitting cubicles" resemble confessionals. Through this isntallation an attempt is made to create a moment of silence and reflection.
