Laura van der Wijden's favorite work

Asking about your favorite work of art at an exhibition with so many different objects is actually impossible. Because how can you place the figures of Klaas Rommelaere above the embroideries of prisoners during the Second World War? Or above the embroidered brains of Monika Auch? Especially when you know the stories behind the impressive works, it is almost impossible to identify a favorite. Especially when you know the stories behind the impressive works, it is almost impossible to identify a favorite. But I was asked, so I have to make a choice. Then they become Klaas's figures. It must certainly have something to do with my latent preference for 3D, and these multi-colored figures make me happy. Sometimes I'm shocked when I see them in the corner of my eye when I'm walking through the museum, because I keep thinking that someone is actually standing there. But above all, the Rommelaere dolls, which are so colorful and carefully made by many hands, put a smile on my face. And they make me curious. They protest, but for what or against what?
