Ingrid Verweijen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2014, and currently is graduating at the Master of Artistic Research department at the Royal Conservatoire
In her work she combines performance, object making, music composition, and distinctive wordplay in polemical and witty videos and performances.
She puts an emphasis on the loss of liveness in everyday life, due to the internet culture, by reconstruction still images and by manually operating video subtitles as well as teleprompter formats.
Currently she is particularly focused on understanding the media construct developed around the image of the singer, throughout different periods of time, using different kinds of media channels. As well, as she explores conventions within the practice of talented musicians or in the field of theatre.
With a playful but cynical approach, she tries to pose serious questions on how we experience pop music and internet culture and how it shapes our behaviour and expectations. And discusses how we absorb iconic models without being aware of their constructed formula and how we all strive to be one of them.
She aims to develop and research unconventional performances that explore the format of the theatre, subverting it’s logic.
