FRIJHEID KINST HAWWE,
MAR IT IS BETTER OM IT TE FIELEN
"You can have freedom, but it’s better to feel free." In this exhibition Martin and Inge portray eight people living in Friesland, a Dutch province with her own language and a strong regional identity. What is essential to the people of Friesland? Freedom (‘frijheid’ in the Friesian language) and community (‘mienskip’) are important elements in their answers. And always a sense of anarchy.

'I started to receive threats on social media.'
'We’ve invented a system in which we have to work from 9 to 5 to make a living.'
'I need the extra adrenaline. Otherwise life is too tedious for me.'
'Nothing is pure good or pure evil.'
'As a child I often wondered, why am I on this planet.'
'He is jealous and can’t stand anyone being between us.'
'I could finally see clearly past my own illusions.'
