Pris Roos is an artist, curator, researcher and storyteller. As a child she grew up in the toko of her family who emigrated from Indonesia. To Pris Roos, the toko symbolises a space of togetherness, colours, smells, food, stories and a mixture of people from different backgrounds. The toko is an enormous source for her art practice. She is an artist who works with different media such as painting, spoken word, video, performance and installation. By focusing on observation and careful listening to the people she meets, she reflects on topics such as identity, migration and memory.
Pris Roos is one of the participating artists of the group project A Funeral for Street Culture (2021), curated by Rita Ouédraogo and Metro54 at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.
