Erika Roux is an artist based in Rotterdam. Through the development of her work she has been experimenting with cinematic methods, story-telling and observational modes of filming. With a personal and intimate approach to the subjects she works with, she investigates the complexities embedded in relationships, identities and interactions within the society that shapes them. More recently, she has been interested in looking at situations and spaces in which people redefine the terms and conditions for production, collaboration or political struggle.
With an observational point of view, she investigates social spaces and modes of being which - by their own existence and actions - question current hegemonic forms of performing and social structures.
Erika Roux is currently a resident at the Jan van Eyck academie in Maastricht. She graduated with a Master in Fine Art from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and holds a Bachelor in Fine Art from the Gerrit Rietveld academie in Amsterdam. Besides her individual artistic practice she currently co-runs WET, a video art collective based in Rotterdam.
