08.02.24, 20:00, Marijke De Roover

In the spring of 2024, the exhibition by Marijke De Roover will open at KIOSK. De Roover is a part-time professional karaoke singer and meme connoisseur, but is currently best known for her queer/feminist performance art. In these works, she poses questions about the nuclear family, feminism/motherhood, ethics of reproduction, and love, romance, and compulsory heteronormativity under late capitalism.

Her early work focuses on the meaning of identities and how they are created and sustained. In previous projects, she conducted research on grassroots politics and the relationship between American elections and Greek theater (You can't spell America w/o me, 2013), how identities exist on the internet in relation to pop culture (The Selfie Song, 2013), Mormon lifestyle and musicals (A Mitt Summer Night's Dream, 2014), and the cult of health (Is bio the new avant-garde, 2015), and religion (Cosmic Latte, 2016).
