Victoria Verseau’s artistic practice is focused on the examination of the body, identity, and social structures. In her work, there are points of contact with philosophy and spirituality. Her personal experiences of being a trans and new woman are often a starting point. Based on her own story, she strives to process existential issues; who we are, who we want to be, and the meaning of life.
