Angel-Rose Oedit Doebé describes herself as a visual artist rooted in the medium of photography. Her body of work stems from a unique perspective, which she defines as “the angel-rose coloured glasses”. Her work explores various mediums including installations, photos, mainly self-portraits, ready-made sculptural work and works with archives. By combining activism, satire, Camp, and pop culture, the artist reflects on marginalization within the white, Western society.
Oedit Doebé’s latest artistic chapter, if you are from europe, why are you brown? draws inspiration from her travels in India, her exploration of Hindustani history in Suriname, and her personal experience as a Brown woman living in a Western country.
