There’s still a world wide problem when it comes to orphans. To me it raises questions about not feeling connected, being in a 'foundling hatch’, a ‘waiting room’, in between.
I found photos of little objects that children carried with them when placed in foundling hatches in the earlier days. These objects were cut in half, so there was still evidence left with the mother when she wanted her child back. These objects somehow became symbols of identity.
When I look at our times I see many refugee children who roam around without parents and which are not given a home in many European countries.
This is a huge problem.
I was wondering if I could give those children ‘a name’, give this inhumanity visibility.
