During the event "Kunst op Locatie" at the festive occasion of 370 years University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.


Everyone on this planet belongs to some kind of etnic, social or related group. There is a change however, that people from different kind of groups are related to each other by common ancestors. So some day you may be standing next to your 'brother' or 'sister' or some far relative without knowing it. The idea that anyone in this world is related to each other is the essence of this project.

In this installation we transform random individuals into members of a new found family by portraying them.
