Our Land

Solo show at Motive Gallery Amsterdam, 2008

"Based on official Royal portraits and anthropological photography from the Dutch colonies, 'Our Land' makes visible what escapes the eye: the ambihious meaning of a history which still haunts the present. Having performed her ditinctive visual surgery on the images, Rothman turns 'Our Land' into a field of possible views on those who shaped and underwent the fates of what has become an unmasterable past."
