Through his work, Gilleam Trapenberg reflects on the contradictions that are part of the social landscape in Curaçao, where the idea of a utopian paradise is diametrically opposed to the realities of post-colonialism and tourism. He explores stereotypes and tropes that have manifested themselves through social culture and the Western media.
