Yeb Wiersma graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Fine Arts) in Amsterdam after which she continued her studies at The Cooper Union in NYC and Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (NL). Her works have been presented by De Oude Kerk, A Tale of a Tub, WEST, FOAM Amsterdam, Migrant Journal, Kröller Müller Museum a.o.

 

Her PROJECTS combine film, photography, performance and text. With her hybrid oeuvre she evokes fresh, migratory narratives between different realities, times, people, feelings, thoughts, things and places while reimagining established systems of knowledge and hierarchy; engaging her voice in pursuit of a more flourishing and just world.

 

Her research PRACTICE is shaped by the belief that being in motion and in relation, and the application of observational skills, spark sensory and alternative routes of knowledge making.
