"The work of Esther Zitman and Tina I like Farifteh for the same reason: both make aesthetically attractive work based on strong concepts. On closer inspection, there are several layers to be discovered, there is form and content. Farifteh has now - well earned - since graduating from the KABK ( 2021) received a lot of attention. Esther Zitman has been making impressive series for some time and deserves to be known to a much larger audience."
