Identity, belonging and memory are at the heart of my artistic photographic work. I research and photograph memories, ambivalent feelings and social & cultural powerstructures within themes as body politics, sexuality, mental health, intergenerational trauma’s and mothering.
My latest work is about love for my body, selflove and healing from trauma.
As an artist*researcher*writer*zinemaker I advocate for womxn who are mothers/caregivers and artists. Within the arts, the myth of the childless-artist still haunts artists who are/want to be a mxther/caregiver. This ‘ghost’ needs to be dismantled to gain equal and justice positions of mxthers within the arts.
With glowing love, Isabelle
