2019, HERRES* 

Solo presentation @ SECONDroom

One night only exhibition on November 23, 18:00 - 21:00

*The word and its subject are not linked by any resemblance, other than their shared perception of meaning. HERRES refers to Arabic street language, meaning 'to slay'. It already covers multiple definitions that change according to the context in which it is said. In Limburgish dialect the word is used to point out someones 'homecoming'.
