Maikel Deekman’s practice unites different worlds—the one of his ancestors and the world of his current life, now. Through his work, he blends the cultural heritage of the Maroons with the contemporary aesthetics of (Dutch) modernism. What distinguishes Deekman's work is his juxtaposition of different techniques—that of craft and handicraft against that of contemporary, high-tech technologies. These cross-pollinations result in colorful works that explore the interplay of technology and tradition.
