Klof, Bario di Spiritu
by Kevin Osepa
About the project
“A man once encountered two sisters in the Kloof, who told him he would crow like a rooster. When he got home he crowed like a rooster, collapsed, and was dead.”
Statistically, a larger number of fatal car crashes also seem to happen here compared to the rest of the island. With his project, Kevin Osepa offers a new perspective on slavery in the past. This is not the perspective we find in Dutch history books, but the perspective of the stories that arose at this location.
