'Bamako, Mali' (fragment)
'The video-diptych 'Bamako, Mali' by Marike Schuurman studies the inventive solutions of an impoverished but inventive community in Mali (West Africa). From inside a driving car she explored a suburb, the project blocks of which are visibly unfinished, but seem to be fully inhabited. In contrast to our over facilitating housing, the strict border between private and public is hard to find in these improvised tenements.  Around the tree trunk supported shells an easy going interaction takes place.'
Siebren de Haan.
