Charlott Weise (b. 1991, Görlitz, Germany), was a participant at De Ateliers (Amsterdam) in 2016. Previously, she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, (Amsterdam), as well as studying under Class of Prof. Christian Macketanz, at Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden, and the artist Heike Dittrich, in Bautzen (Germany). Reflecting upon how femininity is performed across a range of cultural fields, from historical figurative painting to literature and the mainstream media, Charlott’s paintings can be seen as a form of intuitive image-based writing. In these images, interior worlds unfold as rich narrative mise-en-scène; female archetypes find themselves slipping between, in and out of, thick plotlines both banal and bombastic.
