he topic of representation is complex, as there are many diverse views and opinions on how to best represent individuals and minority groups in various contexts. This project prompted me to reflect on my personal experiences with representation.
As a child, I frequently visited the museum, captivated by its collections and exhibitions. I would spend hours immersed in the paintings, photographs, and other works on display.

Looking back, I now realize that there was little representation of the sexuality I started to identify with.
In this video, created in collaboration with visual artist Kiana Beijleveld, I will share my experiences growing up as a bisexual girl and my reflections on representation in art.
Representation is a difficult subject. There are many views and opinions on the “right way” to represent each individual and minority in various settings. In this project, I started to reflect on my own experiences with representation.
