Festival Tweetakt 2019
29 March till 16 June

Roberto Tjon A Meeuw

Fort Ruigenhoek, Groenekan

Roll up your sleeves, make bunting fly like leaves.

Painter, visual artist and surf teacher Roberto Tjon A Meeuw was born in Surinam, lived in the Netherlands for a while and has now moved to Curaçao with his family. He really loves the woods and the ocean and with his art he wants to show everyone on the planet that we should take better care of nature. His favourite material to bring his message across is scraps and leftover material. He finds it all over the place.

Roberto is a genius with plastic sheets: in Curaçao he repairs kite surfers’ kites. Especially for Tweetakt he is bringing a pile of old kites to Fort Ruigenhoek which he cuts into tiny flags to write on. Visitors of all ages can write their messages to add some beauty to the fort, and to the world. 

Roberto Tjon A Meeuw (Paramaribo, 1969) uses recycled materials and regularly initiates large-scale social projects with and for children. One of his best-known works is Fatu Bangi. ‘Fatu’s’ are delectable tales, ‘bangi’s’ are roughly carpentered benches made of leftover material, which you find in working-class districts in Surinam. They are a place for the residents to get together late in the afternoon and exchange the latest gossip and other news.  

Admission to [kites] S O S vlaggetjes is free to visitors of the fort. Day-tickets to Fort Ruigenhoek are available from the box office at the fort. No online ticket sales. For further information about Tweetakt at Fort Ruigenhoek, visit here.
