The helmet is a metaphor of death, complete with the black cloak covering the skull, imitating classical art and reiterating the importance of protecting the most important human possession - the head.
The colour Blue of the eponymous helmet is a hit towards the colour of the uniform of the Dutch Police, one that the artist herself donned one upon a time. It’s a tribute to the team who save lives and takes inspiration from one of the folk art forms of the Netherlands.
The helmet, as a canvas, is a collage of retro motifs that recreate the emotions of being a motorcycle racer. The myriad visuals are inspired from video games, summer heat, flamingos, 80’s vibes and motorcycle racing.
