Emerald Liu: Reflection

Eighteen young writers from Flanders and the Netherlands have brought nineteenth-century artefacts from the Rijksmuseum to life. They wrote their stories in response to the question: what do you see when you look at these objects through the lens of impending doom? Emerald Liu wrote a poem about a toilet mirror, commissioned by King William I as a wedding gift for his daughter Marianne. ‘Every evening I see you appearing / read the day off your face.’
