Homage to an Unknown Woman

For this installation at the Tongerlohuys in Roosendaal, De Geuzen gathered thirteen portraits of unknown women. Important enough to be painted but not significant enough to be remembered, the installation aimed at giving these women a sense of solidarity in their loss of name. Beginning with two portraits from the Tongerlohuys collection, other portraits were added from neighboring residents, collectors, and local museums. The thirteen portraits flanked the walls and in the center of the room was a grand antique table with a white ribbon adorned with potential first names but also qualities of the women.
