Expo Silence to Society
Two sisters, Ziarah and Tisja Janssen, combine their passions and beliefs to inspire and motivate through visual communication. They blend their mixed-race roots from Curaçao and Amsterdam into a young, funky, dynamic and feminine art that’s inclusive and colorful. Especially for this exhibition, they collaborate with their biggest inspiration: Their mother, Helen Martina.
All the artworks were created in times when the world was on its most quiet. The silence provoked us to search for our own identity and create from out our own identity. All the pieces are true extension of our journey and research to self-love and acceptance, daring us to speak up and visually communicate our beliefs.

Women owning their own expressive sensuality. In silence, we focus on what we own, on what we are gifted, pure and natural. Heavenly.
This art piece is made in collaboration with Helen Martina.

You are no different, we might as well be blue.
A touch feels so far away.
The sound of water keeps repeating. The waves will take over my thoughts and create new memories.
There is a thin line between you and me. You might not see it, he keeps it tight.
