Rosanne Jonkhout (1991, she/they) collects found-footage and archive material of ‘broken things’ that together form its own unconventional, multimedia archive. By arranging the material she tells a story that researches power structures in daily life, and how these can be traced back to major social systems. Through video-installations and performances Rosanne Jonkhout creates a place that may be contaminated with the uncomfortable, the mean, the painful, the raw and the sensationalistic. Here, an endless cycle of power is articulated; one without direction or resolution. To grant us the briefest of breaks from societal norms, the work aims to air out its dirty laundry and infinitely connect the clothes lines.
