The video-installation “A Sworn Virgin and a Pink Sister” is about sacrifice and pride and covering the body. It shows the silent portraits of two women who both took an important decision in their younger years which was formative for the rest of their lives. At the time, a well-considered and voluntary decision for both, but nowadays one that hardly ever occurs anymore. A way of life which not too long from now will disappear. The work is shown in the butterfly room of the MissionMuseum in Steyl (the Netherlands). A symbolic place that refers to the women’s metamorphoses in a museum filled with heritage. www.missiemuseumsteyl.nl
