EUGENIE BOON, 1995

Born in Curacao, lives and work in The Hague as - www.eugenieboon.com

 

Eugenie Boon's is a multi-disciplinary artist who's works revolves around her upbringing on the island of Curacao and the island's historical relation to the Netherlands. In her attempt to understand the subtle complexities she encounters in her daily life experiences, she is constantly confronted with the aspect of duality. Duality through topics like religion, colonialism, gender, inequality and identity and the struggles with that duality comes back in her performances, installations ,video works and paintings. In a shamanistic , playful, poetic yet still critical way, her projects questions social-political issues and cultural vs institutional structures in which the spectator is challenged to recognise their self and perhaps reflect on their own position.
