The artistic practice of the Belgian artist Sarah Vanhee (° 1980) is linked to performance, visual arts and literature, and unfolds in various environments. In The Making of Justice (2016), seven prisoners work together with her on the scenario for a crime film. Like the main character in the film, they are all guilty of murder. To shape the story, they draw on their own experiences, ideas and desires. We, the viewers, can only guess whether they are using fiction as a means of confirming, transcending or transforming their present situation. In the course of the film they discuss criminality as a parallel reality, what the nature of justice is, and what a society would be like if it was oriented towards healing rather than retribution.
