PERFORMANCE: Shardenia Felicia

Book Tickets

Join artist Shardenia Felicia for a PERFORMANCE that delves into the artist’s paracosm: a fantasy world created by Felicia and her twin sister during their childhood. Called Kechenen, the world was made up of elderly characters, which figure prominently in her work in My Oma.

This PERFORMANCE is part of Show and Tell, a day of artist-led programs that celebrates the mid-way point of My Oma, our current exhibition dedicated to grandmothers and encountered in the work of 24 artists from 19 countries.

Shardenia Felicia is an artist from Curaçao, now based in Rotterdam. She is interested in storytelling and in understanding how her own story has been shaped by society. Through paintings and installations encompassing textile and found objects, she explores themes of motherhood, feminism, family relations, and constructs of safety and resistance. Felicia is a graduate from KABK MA in Artistic research and has exhibited at NEST, The Hague; Theater Spui, The Hague; and Quartair, The Hague among other places.

In this PERFORMANCE, Felicia at times embodies Doei, at times talks to her. Doei was the main character of the paracosm. Through this alter ego, Felicia invites visitors to get immersed in her world, and get acquainted with your inner grandmother and fears of aging.
