I WON(DER IF)

I WON(DER IF) is a flag I designed as a respons to the sentence 'Je Verdient Het' (translates as 'You Earn It') written by artist Joanneke Meester which formed the concept for a group exhibition at Cargo in Context in Amsterdam in 2018.

The work refers to a Fortune Cookie as a bearer of fortunes and wisdoms. Partially the inscription 'I WON' is visible on a piece of paper. However 'I WON' is actually part of the broader sentence 'I WONDER IF' that is still hidden inside the cookie.

'I WONDER IF' is a symbol for feelings of hope, curiosity, doubt and uncertainty all at the same time. Feelings I often experience personally and as artist.
