Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Performance Art
In her carefully constructed but direct performances, Jolanda submits her body to various
transformations, or rather deformations, to engage with the possibility of self-reinvention and
release from cultural determinations. Her work often stages the passage from a sexualized
female body to an animal-like corporeality as a way of challenging constraining definitions
of self and of femininity. And it is not only her own controlled body that the artist hopes to
disorganize and transform; her performances also intend to provoke viewers out of their routine
bodily behaviors. To do so, she often uses the camera as a tool to invade the viewer’s personal
space and engage with issues of voyeurism and gender power relations.
