Yeb Wiersma (visual artist, writer, activist) aims to challenge the language and lines drawn between the personal and political, the other- and sameness, the center and the peripheral, the body and the earth. In doing so, she asks us what it means to exist, what and whose stories we tell, and how to engage our voice in pursuit of a polyphonic, humane and spirited world.
Her practice is shaped by the belief that paying attention, whilst being in motion and in relation, spark empathic routes of knowledge making.
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 FOAM Amsterdam, Migrant Journal, The Kröller Müller Museum a.o.
