Catalogue Note

Earlier in her oeuvre, Bea de Visser made soundworks, paintings and photographs in addition to video installations and short films. The portrait is a reappearing sign in her work, through which she embodies personal perceptions and/or physical experience. De Visser explored painting, electroacoustic music, live performances and dance before she began, in around 1995, to combine all of these different disciplines in film and video installations. The work that she has developed since then has been displayed not only in museums and exhibition spaces but also, and above all, in the cinema, the theatre and on the street. Her audiovisual work is extraordinarily tactile, and is strongly focused on body language as the expression of a state of mind; in her work, even small muscular movements or subtle facial expressions become significant, communicative gestures. De Visser has made short 35mm films that have been screened at film festivals in both the Netherlands and in other countries, winning various prizes. In past years she has collaborated with, among others, the choreographer Krisztina de Châtel (Waterlanders, 2001) and with the dancer and choreographer Jean-Guillaume Weis (Nijinski, 2005 and Catastrophes, 2006).

Bea de Visser was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1993-1994.
