Curated by Karla D. Romero
Ted Oonk’s work expands on the culture of societal constraints, such as what is normal vs. abnormal and the categorization and power of stigmatization. She explores these concepts in her piece, This is not about you #2, part of an ongoing project that started in 2005 with a similar name, This is not about you.
In this piece, Ted projects a moving image of her sister, Pim, who has Down syndrome. Here, the viewer is directly exposed to a simplified moving image and what the artist calls, easy to understand metaphors.
Oonk is a Thailand-born, Dutch female artist based in Belgium.
