UN/SUB: de jacht op zwarte piet. 1995

De Jacht op Zwarte Piet unpacks the role of the so-called moor(ish) assistant Zwarte Piet (Black Peter) to St. Nicolaas, the Dutch patron saint of children who visits them during Sinterklaas. Fleming buries himself in a pit of cinnamon and sugar which coats his body and, upon emerging, is licked off. In this action Fleming merges Zwarte Piet, the formation that surrounds the eating of a traditional confection, taai taai in order to expose Dutch traditions of the consumption of the Black body.
