Dorine van Meel
Dorine van Meel (b.1984) is an artist trained at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and Goldsmiths College in Londen.
Her practice unfolds through collective and discursive projects that result in moving image installations, performances, publications and long-term collaborations. In her video work, digitally produced images are combined with composed soundtracks and texts read by the artist as well as other female narrators. Moving between diaristic observations, fragments of conversations, and reflections on news items and social media feeds, her work analyses the power relations permeating everyday life while searching for possible modes of resistance and alternative political imaginaries.
Van Meel’s work has been shown at the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, the South London Gallery, KW Institute for ContemporaryArt in Berlin, W139 in Amsterdam, IMPAKT, Centre for Media Culture in Utrecht, Nottingham Contemporary and Transmediale in Berlin.
Together with Simangaliso Sibiya, Ibrahim Cissé and Phumzile Twala she organises the Decolonial Futures Cultural Exchange Programme at Framer Framed, a collaborative project between the Sandberg Instituut and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, and FUNDA Community College in Soweto, South Africa.
