Sara Vrugt, Collateralen (Collaterals); Heden, The Hague

In the basement of Heden Sara Vrugt (1981) shows in Collateralen (Collaterals) three works about domestic violence.

The works were triggered by the idea of economists about the financial loss to the GDP by domestic violence.

She reacts especially to the cold-bloodedness of the economists’ findings.

They have become intriguing sculptures with the fallen bodies flat and almost eradicated on the floor and the tension of the textile threads.

There are also some small works about meetings she had during a visit to Iran.

They seem to ‘re-humanise’ the show more or less.
