this piece measures no less than 402 x 250 cm and is made up of hundreds of postcards that show us all the best bits of the beautiful Dutch landmarks, with blue skies (the famous postcard blue) or beautiful historic buildings in town and village. the postcards help us greet each other and tell that we’re having a great time. All the cards that have been sent in the artwork has been sent to a fellow dutch resident. When the viewer literally gets away from the work (at least 10 meters), he or she can see the contours of the head of a young woman from the middle east. the word in huge letters at the bottom of the artwork reads out NEE (NO). it is a clear reference to the protests against the refugees in our country.
