The place is extraordinary.

Lost at the end of a small swiss mountain valley, 
the former spa hotel opens up its doors to the artists creating different worlds, to the guests to enter those worlds and transform them further.
The extraordinairy regional mythologies and geologies enhance the procedure.

Port - au- Prince, Haiti, working space of Atis Rezistans 2016/2017, Museum E Pluribus Unum


¨Legba Kap Vomi Lajen¨


Ideas and concept and a lot of bloody work: Robert Louis + Daniela Belinga as an ARTIST DUO. February and March 2016,

Port au Prince, Haiti (​)

Daniela invited by Robert to work at Atis Rezistans working space. Thanks for that Robert. Thanks to Andre Eugene (Atis Grann Rezistan) for letting us work in his working space and for his openness and friendlyness.

Thanks to Syndia Leonce (Artist) for doing the Vèvès. Thanks to Patrick (Artist and Masterdrummer) for assisting us. Thanks to Baka (Artist) for Assisting us. Thanks to all the other artists of the space for their interest. ( For the many ¨assemblées generales¨)  ;-)

Installation out of wooden masks, portraits pastel on japanese paper and cardboard, old rags coming as donations from USA and Europe, tree branches, plastic cuvettes for washing clothes or selling stuff used by women, paperboards, turkey feathers.

We have many other titles: they are written on the cardboards:


¨Blan kap pwofite ayisyen¨

¨Wennt mi nomol aluegsch hau der eis id fresse¨


¨Christ reviens¨

¨Sex Tourism¨

¨Volè Kochon¨

many others


The work was activated by a ...priest...march 23. All of this to give us the possibility to make the spirit powers of vodou work for us to get money from swiss state art foundations and make bit more then half of it travel to Haiti.

Robert Louis and i use each others special powers to make that money appear.

Robert as artist and vodou initiate who can make that magic work. And me as an elder experienced and neurotic swiss woman and artist who has access to that money.

( And being interested in vodou in a psychological and philosophical way.)

That last is the basic concept.

Then, with the work in process, the vodou worked in a way, meaning all the hidden energies (fears, jalousies, historic prejudices of all included persons exploded at several moments, that is what was written as titles on the cardboards)
