Silvia Russell. Installation view of "Do you See Me?" In Centrum Beeldende Kunst Zuidoost, Amsterdam, 2010.

Description:
During her residency at Centrum Beeldende Kunst Zuidoost in the Bijlmer, Amsterdam, Russel conducted interviews with residents that participated in the educational programs offered at the Center. The residential area was developed in the 70's and at that time was presented as a suburban neighborhood, a utopia. However, it became known as the ghetto of Amsterdam. In recent years the neighborhood has seen drastic changes and celebrates its diversity within the community. The interviews led to portraits of hope, integration and the balance between two cultures that were exhibited in the center. Permanent installation in the educational center of CBKZ in the Bijlmer, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
