The Darling Collection - Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten 2017
For a study project, a group of Tilburg FHK students went to the South African village of Darling for art, community and talent development.
Each maker received five different objects and stories from several inhabitants in the village to make an art-piece inspired by their stories. At the Darling Festival, which took place on the cross-boarder of the divided Darling, the stories were presented.
The aftermath of apartheid can still be felt in Darling. This project aims to allow a divided people to meet and recognize each other through art.
