Foam presents the first museum exhibition of works by Gilleam Trapenberg. This solo exhibition at Foam 3h is the next step in the photographer’s ongoing, long-term quest to consider the representation and imagery of the Caribbean.

'Unbé t’aweró' means 'soon it will be later' in Papiamentu, the local language spoken on the islands of Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire. This series is Trapenberg’s visual interpretation of the national identity of Curaçao, where he was born and raised. In his photographs, warm memories of his youth on the island are alternated with traces of the colonial past and subtle undertones of political misrule, but also individual pride and expressions of identity – more than ten years since Curaçao became an autonomous country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
