1973 born in Bergen op Zoom, Netherlands
Lives & works in Rotterdam, Netherlands

 

In her works, Madeleine BERKHEMER concentrates on social processes that deal with sexuality; she focuses on femininity, the woman and even on herself. Dressed up as Milly, Molly or Mandy, the artist plays with lust and desire. MMM, three personalities in the body of one woman – innocent, extravagant or shameless – a broad field has to be covered. Whether sculpture or drawing, Madeleine BERKHEMER´s works deal with femininity and sexuality; with stockings, shoes or underwear she overdraws the image of womanhood. She knows no limits and she breaks taboos. In addition to shows in Europe, BERKHEMER has also exhibited her work in the United States many times.
