‘Kibri a kulturu’ or ‘preserve the culture’. This theme is the heart and soul of the work of the
Surinamese visual artist Marcel Pinas (Pelgrimkondre, Marowijne District, 1971). The cultural heritage of the Surinamese Maroon community of the N’dyuka, also known as the Aucaners, is Marcel Pinas’ source of inspira on as well as his mo ve in all endeavors he undertakes. ‘Kibii wi koni’ or ‘preserve our wisdom’ takes this theme one step further. One layer deeper.
