Victoria Verseau

Victoria Verseau (b. 1988) works in various media ranging from moving images to sculpture, large-scale installation, and performance. Her artistic practice examines the body and memory formation, shaping identity through the affection of social structures. She is searching to tell untold stories, remaining in the periphery towards oblivion. Approaching destructive forgetfulness, she attempts to capture, preserve and reconstruct the fleeting memories of crucial times that shape subjectivities. Verseau has recently presented solo exhibitions at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, “Approaching a Ghost,” and Uppsala Konstmuseum, “Engender My Past” (both 2021). Whitechapel Gallery, London; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Para Site, Hong Kong; Foundation Proa, Buenos Aires, and Project 88, Mumbai, among others, recently screened her video work Approaching a Ghost (2021) . Victoria Verseau lives and works in Stockholm, where she graduated with an MFA from the Royal Institute of Art in 2020. In 2017, she was the recipient of the ANNA Prize, established by Women in Film and Television (WIFT) Sweden and UN Women Sweden to expand the knowledge of CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all Forms Discrimination against Women). Presently she is working on her debut feature film Meril.
