About

How would it truly feel to have been enslaved in the past? This question is central in the multidisciplinary art project 'A Chained Journey,' created by artist Charmaine de Heij. 'A Chained Journey' addresses the history of slavery and colonization in Suriname. Through experiential performance, video art, and photography, this project vividly portrays the horrors of slavery and confronts the audience with its grim reality.

In the experiential performance, Charmaine invites participants to symbolically undergo the painful journey of slavery and experience the forced voyage aboard slave ships. The audience can choose to observe or actively participate in the experiential performance. "A Chained Journey" addresses, among other things, the indigenous peoples of Suriname, the horrors of slavery, and the human impact of these atrocities. Video and photography support the narrative, serving as poignant reflections of this dark period in history. "A Chained Journey" is accessible and interactive, promoting profound reflection and raising awareness among the audience.

The opening is on July 3rd at 15:00 at Parkvilla, with the experiential performance starting at 15:30 on the same day. The art will be available for viewing until July 6th. On July 6th, there are also opportunities to participate in an experiential performance at 12:00 and 14:00.

"A Chained Journey" is free for everyone.
No tickets are required to view the exhibition.
