Tembe Art Studio

Helweg & La Cruz and participants of the Art Studio in Moengo painted fabric together. By using associative patterns the duo wanted to create conversation. With the elderly of Moengo, they tried to research their memories, the heritage of Surinam, Marowijne and Moengo. With the younger generation they tried to find out, through assignments, what they would want changed.

A short film was made in collaboration with the local community that presents the Marron cosmology. Van Brummelen and De Haan wrote the script together with participants of the studio, based on conversations and location visits. The scene was performed by the participants.
