Lisette (1991) is a conceptual performance artist currently living and working in Amsterdam.
In my work I challenge conventions, routine behavior and banal acts and I question their self-evidence. Starting point of my work is the confrontation with myself; questioning and challenging my own bodily conditioning, lust for control and daily routine. As performance artist I am using myself to provide audiences with the same confrontation as I undergo, both in body and spirit. I pose questions by doing. My critical findings are shared in live performances, performance video art, as installations or whichever form is suited best for transferring the research results and forcing confrontation.
Live performance of my work ‘INTERVENING SPACE: My Self, the Body’ at EYE Film Museum as part of the official art program ‘The Man Machine’. Video by Rob Schröder and Gabrielle Provaas.
Some international highlights: “I am very happy to announce that I am a selected artist to show my new performance work and installation ‘INTERVENING SPACE: My Self, the Body’ at South by Southwest [SXSW] in Austin, Texas, USA, March 2018.”
