patricia kaersenhout (we/us)
born in the netherlands but a descendant from surinamese parents, I developed an artistic journey in which I investigate my surinamese background in relation to my upbringing in a West european culture.
the political thread in my work raises questions about the african diaspora’s movements and its relation to feminism, sexuality, racism and the history of slavery.
by revealing forgotten histories I try to regain dignity and create transformative justice.
for more information about my work and art practice please contact my agent antoin deul.
