Cornelia Wyngaarden

Since the 1980s, Wyngaarden has explored queer and female subjectivity, taking up as the topic the heroine of various stories from Greek mythology to Canadian parliamentary history. Her poetic video portraits of female protagonists defy the male-centric order of their respective milieu.
