Last year I was at Oudaen, a city castle at Utrecht, Netherlands which now is a crowdy hotspot for party people. I was dining near the window in the corner with hundreds of people around me but a single cat was lying quietly by the window. I took a picture and in the back of my mind this cat lingered on, waiting to pop out as a motif for an art work. Since I am quite fond of cats and believe cats to function as portals to different dimensions and the afterlife, combined to working on my new Egypt project on Bettie Page, I experimented with some sceneries relating to the subject.
