DIVA OPAQUE COLLECTION, ANONYMOUS GUARDIANS OF INTIMACY


This work started initially as a critique to Dutch politician Geert Wilder’s separatist future promises and Sarkozy’s burka ban in France. We hid behind the pseudonym Scarf_whiz80, an invented persona who has a secret image collection which glorifies the opacity (versus transparency) and the veil.
