'De Passage', KF Heinfonds 2018
A project commissioned by the K.F. Hein Fonds in collaboration with 't Groene Sticht.
The mural 'De Passage' is a work in which an ode is brought to the stories within 't Groene Sticht, a neighborhood in Leidsche Rijn where people from different backgrounds find a way to live together. During my stay at 't Groene Sticht I collected stories around the theme 'transition'. Transition is about developing yourself and your surroundings. It is about becoming visible to society again and finding a daily structure. But it's also about the importance of being together and finding a home.
The mural shows images that depict these different transitions. Visual elements such as the tree, the stairs, the house, the road, the human figure and the passage are shown repeatedly. In this way, the stories gathered within 't Groene Sticht are shown outside on the main square in a suggestive and playful way.
