‘Tags’ is a series of works on wood, with which Witte researches the human need to feel seen and heard; to belong somewhere. The desire for appreciation and recognition are fundamental human needs, which influence social phenomena such as self-presentation and social comparison.
Witte derives her tags from the graffiti culture, where an artist with a signature marks a certain area and shows that he is ‘there’.
16 tags will be placed at various locations in the center of Utrecht on Sunday 16 September. It will be part of the contemporary art route We ART Utrecht 2018.
