Blou Blauw is the result of a collaboration with Dutch Caribbean artist Harley Davelaar 2017. The artwork, a Caribbean iguana and a Dutch Frog, holding each other, back-to-back, in balance. They are a metaphor for us, the Dutch and Antillean sapiens but actually for all sapiens. The same DNA, once even the same origin but shaped by migration, environment and climate. In our sculpture, they, the iguana and the frog, have merged together, exploring each other and showing each other’s qualities. Typical Caribbean and Dutch elements recur in the execution, such as a Delft-blue print in combination with Antillean colors and the blue feet as on the Blou Blou lizard. The sculpture is therefore appropriately named Blou Blauw. The Blou Blou is a lizard with azure feet and tail. In its name, actually, everything comes together; the blue of the Delft Blue, the Zwolle Blue as in the blue-white flag and the blue fingers and the blue from the Antillean flag, the colour of the Caribbean sea, the feet of the Blou Blou. The artwork is Blou Blauw is an occasional collaboration between Harley Davelaar and Marit Otto at the invitation of Nora Kastein and Hugh Neil (Margin-art & media) on the occasion of the Caribbean celebration Jamshak. During the summer of 2017 it was exhibited in the Stadkamer, Zwolle
