Bea de Visser is recognized for her film art, installation work and sound performances. In her work, she questions different perspectives and ways of vision. The stranger, the more deviating the other vision is to our (human) cultural priority vision, the more interesting. These stories form a picture of a world of diversity, inclusivity and multi perspectives. All viewpoints are different, but essentially the same. Animals are a recurring motif in her work. Her work seduces the onlooker by a rich cinematographic language, that is poetic in nature, and told by alternative narrative form.
