As a multidisciplinary artist Jeltje Schuurmans (1996) investigates through installation, sculptural objects, video, and performance the psychological processes of the brain and their translation to the body. In her installations she approaches the body as a landscape which carries intra- and intergenerational traces, consisting of different layers, making the connection with the different layers of the psyche and the human skin. With her work she questions how the collective unconsciousness of society has structured our way of living and how we are conditioned, in order to create awareness around these fundamentally rooted structures of our modern society.


The leading factor in her work is to convey an often uncomfortable physical experience through tactility in both environment, moving image as in material.
