Madelief van de Beek
My art practice revolves around storytelling. Culture, the media, and how we over the years have decided to record and tell our stories; what is worth to be remembered and what remains hidden for those who are willing to try and find out about the other side. This makes my work layered, and often research-based. I have a soft spot for the underdog, criticism of the protagonist and often an obsession with establishing the gray area.
I am a self-proclaimed intersectional feminist and like to experiment with various materials, and forms of performative art. Often starting from myself but going over into the depths of other women around me
