Erika Roux

video - artistiek onderzoek - documentair - schrijven - film

Erika Roux is a visual artist based in Rotterdam working mostly with video. With a rather intuitive and intimate approach to the medium, she uses the camera as a tool to create a specific bond with individuals, a group of people or a community. Her work navigates between the critical potential of fiction and re-enactment and the complications present in documentary material. In both cases, the idea that the camera is a tool registering a performing subject is put forward while domestic and private environments become a place of investigations as a politically and socially charged context. In her recent productions, she is interested in looking – with a documentary approach - at situations and spaces in which people redefine the terms and conditions for production, collaboration, or political struggle looking at social spaces and modes of being which - by their own existence and actions - question current hegemonic forms of performing and power structures.


The Brain Mixologist

Tentoonstelling / presentatie

  • 31-08-2021 t/m 31-10-2021
  • In samenwerking met: LUCIE DRAAI, VALENTINA JAGER, BORAM SOH, AMY SUO WU, MARÍA SOSA
  • Locatie: A Tale of a Tub, Rotterdam
  • The Brain Mixologist is an exhibition that plays around the languages of the body that unfold metalinguistic narratives or knowledges of oppressed mother-tongues that still resonate through sensuality, ritualistic practices and haptic encounters. Phantoms that move back and forth, from body to body, as socio-political gestures of other worldviews.

Puissance-de-ne-pas

Tentoonstelling / presentatie

  • 13-03-2021 t/m 18-04-2021
  • In samenwerking met: Victor Santamarina
  • Locatie: Marwan, Amsterdam
  • The exhibition Puissance-de-ne-pas is not so much a refusal of what featured artists Erika Roux and Victor Santamarina describe as ‘the imperative impulse of determination’, the ever-accelerating forces that prod us to be like zeros and ones. Rather than merely saying nay, the works on display turn their focus on their own becoming. They are finished, they are as they should be, yet at the same time, they reveal a potential-not-to-be, or be otherwise.
