Collection lost at OEQC in Maastricht 2015

A flagship collection of Katriina´s work disappeared in Maastricht, Netherlands, in November 2015 while in the care of the Textile Festivals/ OECD, an event organisation  run by a Ms. Ada Honders, Netherlands. The collection covered years of labour and was Katriina´s contribution to an exhibition collaboration (invited by OEQC)  with colleague Jette Clover, Belgium.

 

The company in response A.D.A. BV  (after the owner) admitted their responsibility but neglected to compensate the loss referring to a poor cash flow and relying on the fact that legal demands would force Katriina to run a costly and timely prolonged legal process in the Netherlands, the country of the loss. Despite repeated requests Katriina has not been informed about any  legal action ever taken by the company for finding her work. 

A.D.A BV went out of business in early 2017. Ms. Honders continues her business engagement in the previous address under a new business label.
