Sloth Books of Wisdom
Growing up in the ’90ies in the midst of the third wave of feminism, accompanied by girl power, I have always had a strong feeling of fairness and equality. As a child I wanted to contribute to this by joining Green Peace and chain myself to an oil tanker, or going into politics to become the first female prime minister of the Netherlands. Now, my work revolves around stirring issues I encounter in life: decaying bodies, boyfriends far far away, and cry worthy political developments which make me want to cry, but make me sing. Enlarging these issues till they translate into (often uncanny) scenes, gives the opportunity to understand, question and criticize them. As a believer in that the personal is political, my work is a display of our contemporary world and society – although at times a quite alienating one.
