Bio

Dutch/German artist Céline Schroeder grew up in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, before moving to Rotterdam at the age of 17, to study art at the Willem de Kooning Academy.  Celine had a preoccupation with the female form from an early point in her artistic life and became intrigued with the notion of women as artists and the feminist cause. She was continually challenged by her tutors in her representation of the female nude, with some accusing her of being overtly pornographic in her subject matter.

BIO

Dutch/German artist Céline Schroeder grew up in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, before moving to Rotterdam at the age of 17, to study art at the Willem de Kooning Academy.  Celine had a preoccupation with the female form from an early point in her artistic life and became intrigued with the notion of women as artists and the feminist cause. She was continually challenged by her tutors in her representation of the female nude, with some accusing her of being overtly pornographic in her subject matter.

Celine went on to an exchange program in the UK and found that her work was received in an entirely different way, and with more open discussion. Once back in Rotterdam she became interested in video and live performances and began to incorporate it into her work, exploring the realms of animation.

Celine graduated from Willem de Kooning in 2002 and with assistance from the BKVB Fund in Amsterdam, went on to study video and performance at the Basel in Switzerland. Her final degree work won the Price Waterhouse Coopers Startpreis.

In 2006 Celine moved back to the Netherlands and then Dordrecht, Germany in 2014, where she now lives and works. In 2014 she became a member of the drawing-society Pictura Dordrecht.

Celine has participated in exhibitions, video festivals and performace-events in The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, UK and Serbia.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work as an artist is that of a collector in a multimedia world. I take the enchanting world of the media as a starting point, especially the beauty magazines and the internet. It’s a game with cliché images from our mass culture. I “steal” from this mass-merchandise and make it unique. I only alienate a certain aspect, I change it, strip of its old context and then put it back. I look for material in which the view on the female body is demonstrated. I take interest in analyzing stereotypes and rusted patterns and expose their one-sidedness.

This attempt to expand the view on the female body, leads to the question; “Are other, new images developing?’ The answer to this question and the search for new images are the foundations of my work. I’m aware of the danger that these stereotypes might catch up with me, because every view on the reality of the female body carries a social and cultural stamp and is therefore deformed. Avoiding these deformations in my work is the challenge that I stand for: developing my own view on the the female body, shaped by my own experiences.
