Connected to this photo installation at Oét d'r Stjub I also realized the neon sculpture mijn-dijn (2015) about the accumulation of capital during the time the coal mines were operational in the region. 'mijn-dijn' has been inspired by the pamphlet 'Carboonkolonisatie' (1974) by Nic Tummers. It's about aspects of colonialism in the history of the South Limburg coalfields. He describes the influence of it over the society which has developed there. Thanks to being presented next to each other, 'mijn-dijn' and 'Pabrik Gula', draw subtle parallels between Java and Limburg.
