Josepha Van Den Anker, St. Thomas
The Politics of Identity, 2021

Van Den Anker’s art often reflects a personal narrative, engaging the viewer in the psychological drama of human emotions. She explores the polemics of human relations and questions the confines of self-identity in the politics of society, often including themes of violence, power, and gender.

The Politics of Identity is a narrative about social interaction, self-meaning and cognition, set in the context of uncertain or threatening behaviour.
