ARTIST STATEMENT

Larice Schuurbiers (b. 1997) is a photographer and activist. By examining the intersections between gender and ethnicity, she questions the unequal positions of marginalised groups in society. 

 

As a photographer, Larice investigates the role of representation and the power of the image. The power of a collective image we project onto groups of people, 'the other’,  has a great influence on the power imbalances of our society. This motivates Larice to take responsibility as a visual activist. She uses her work to contribute to more positive, multidimensional representations of communities she photographs. By acknowledging her identity and the privileges that come with it, she can see our differences in social and cultural structures much clearer.

 

With the use of photography, moving image and text, Larice would like to raise awareness and simultaneously start a dialogue with her audience. Her work is often connected with her political engagement, as Larice Schuurbiers aims to redefine identity and shift our way of looking.
