Land art and installation of childrens's drawings in the provincial city of Kushtia, Bangladesh on December 2016.
I used my body as a mark on the ground in order to create two life sized fetuses with the help of a colleague.
Then I colored them with indigo.
I chose this color due to its history in Bangladesh, the way it was cultivated in colonial times and the workers' s revolt and also because it is a symbol of water and the sky.
A paper boat is placed inside one of the fetuses indicating
the wonderful journey called life.
The children's drawings make the connection in the creative process of travelling.


I am in the city of Kushtia, Bangladesh where I originally participated in an International Art Camp.
The theme given by the curatorial team was "The Sense of Freedom" and the task was to reflect on what is freedom and why in different cultures it is associated with birds.
I came up with two projects that would complete one another. One was to run an art workshop with children from the local community and ask them to freely draw their dreams and imaginary landscapes. The workshop was done with the collaboration of the fellow Indian artist and story teller, who kindly translated my words and also asked the children to narrate their own stories.
Then secondly I decided to create an installation called "Birth" by digging to the ground and coloring with indigo two identical fetuses and displaying on parallel the children's drawings.
