Renée Koldewijn | Not Mama’s Umbrella | interactive installation | Afrikamuseum Berg en Dal | 2018
‘Not Mama’s Umbrella’ was realised in 2015 for a show in the Volkenkunde Museum Leiden. The year of the 40th celebration of independance of Suriname in collaboration with artist Isan Corinde. The concept is about the universal wish of every human being to be autonomous.
In 2018 Renée Koldewijn organised a workshop at the Afrikamuseum in Berg en Dal. Visitors were encouraged to paint un umbrella in their personal style. In that way everybody participated in the installation, which turned out into a forest of walking umbrella’s.
