During embroidery, Drost listened to music from the 17th and 18th centuries. Baroque. Many a countertenor has stolen his heart. He usually didn't understand the sung texts; however, he regularly heard the words 'in paradiso' pass by. See here, the all-encompassing title for his oeuvre.
A preview of 'XL' - that is how this embroidery project is called - was shown at several locations during the Qtopia Queer Arts Festival Nijmegen 2018. The project is still under development, can go many ways. It has not yet adopted a final form, is not finished yet. In collaboration with photographer Tyson Ernste, with each jumpsuit a set of three staged photos was created.'
