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.
As a child, you could find me at the museum at least once a month. I was fascinated by its collections and exhibitions and could spend hours, or as long as my young mind would allow me, studying the paintings, photographs, and other artworks.
Even though visiting the museum was always a very positive experience, I couldn’t always completely relate to the work. Looking back at it, I realize there was little to no representation of the sexuality which I slowly started to identify with.
In this video, which was made in collaboration with visual artist Kiana Beijleveld, I’ll tell you about my experiences with representation in art, growing up as a bisexual girl.
