More about the work:

Welcome in Paradise is a videowork and installation that adresses the importance of welcoming (climate crisis) asylum seekers instead of being hostile and focussing on the refusal of refugees in the Netherlands. Lies Aris rewrote the Genesis story, giving Eva the power. Eva, as the archetypal mother figure wants to take care of human race and nature. Instead of sending p[eoplke away: her style of leadeship is welcoming and kind. She represents a new style of leadership. Matriarchy above Patriarchy. 


Treehouse is excited to invite you to the opening of our upcoming exhibition Hear All Voices this Thursday June 22nd at 18h.

In connection with Over Het Ij Festival's theme for this year, this 4-week long exhibition seeks to interrogate how (or if) our democracy supports or does not support the participation of every citizen in it. The 19 participating artists will invite you to reflect on stagnant forms of government and the flaws our democracies have shown in terms of inclusivity, accountability, transparency, environmental responsibility, and social and climate justice. After all, exploration and experimentation through art can bring new imaginaries that may serve as a starting point to build better systems.

Hear All Voices will also include a series of workshops and side-activities organised by the participating artists in relation to their featured pieces and/or their practice.



Ornela Alia, Lies Aris, Olga Butenop, Flock Theatre, Antoni Hidalgo, Leslie Lawrence, Rucha Kulkarni, Jennie E. Park, Marcella Perrusquia, Gina Peyran Tan, Ana Pinho, Jean-Michel Rolland, Judith Segers, Sophia Simensky, Helga van Stralen, Mathias Vico Persson, Irene Bruns, Kirill Zakomoldin & Lova Yu.

'Hear all Voices' exhibition was supported by AFK (Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst).
