Printmaking: Screenprinting on Paper.
What started with a book about Lesotho I found in a container back in 2012 was followed by a series of 32 collages.
I got inspired by the inscription on the first page of this book, which said: 'Dear mother, to get used to your future country. Love, your daughter, May 1984'...
I wondered what they were doing there, what they saw, how they felt. Did the girl move to Lesotho to work, travel, or married a guy of Lesotho?
Without knowing these answers, I started to make my journey through this book, just like I do travelling through my collection of books to make my collages.
The pictures in the book have been given a new life now: reconstructed images travelling throught time into a new dimension.
With this project I made my final move: I have transfered these small collages into big silkscreen prints, making my imaginary journey on the printing table. Struggling with the transition I ended up with seven different silkscreenprints on a scale of 55"x39".
