Darwin Winklaar’s work is based on the notion of “altarismo”, a concept which shaped most of the artists’ upbringing. A series of six altars teleports the audience to the magical realm where Winklaars’ childhood memories are being venerated, healed and liberated.
The multidisciplinary artist uses embodied storytelling, music, dance and singing to decolonize and convey his artistic practice. Winklaar reintroduces a new genre informed by his Aruban roots: Neo-Folklorism.
