2018 Tags

21 Kapitaal‘Tags’ is a series of works on wood, with which I research the human – and as an artist also the professional – 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.

The tags derive from the graffiti culture, where an artist with a signature marks a certain area and shows that he is ‘there’.

16 tags were placed at various locations in the center of Utrecht on Sunday 16 September as part of the contemporary art route We ART Utrecht 2018.
