kaersenhout unravels and disrupts dominant narratives by centering stories that have been relegated to the margins of the Dutch cultural archive. By listening closely to the stories of Black women, indigenous women, and women of colour, the artist charts intricate constellations of care across geographies.

kaersenhout’s drawings, installations, textiles, and video works are shaped by an embodied, spiritual, and collective practice. In interweaving archival materials, dreams, memories and language, the artist shows how she contends with place, belonging, and impossibility.
