Milli on the Marow

In a desire to test through staging in the Netherlands, some of the insights and sensibilities gained in Suriname related to making with reference to water, 'Milli on the Marow' is presented as a conceptual space which attempts to straddle and cross-pollinate the cultural perspectives of these two locations, and their respective relationship with nature.

It examines the possible results of this cross-pollination through a manipulation of the idea of 'Resort' and more specifically in the context of this research; the 'Nature Resort'.

It looks at placing Millingerwaard on the Marowijne.

This project is part of a Fellowship supported by Tilting Axis and Het Nieuwe Instituut, in collaboration with the Amsterdam Museum, De Appel, The Black Archives and Melly.

*korjaal (pronounced kȯr-ē-al) is a dug-out or canoe.
