    Photograph from the series All I Ever Wanted. Hester Scheurwater’s persona is an exploration into the existing ideas on femininity. Her new and second book (2015) All I Ever Wanted published by Editions Bessard consists of various leaflets like the different rooms in a house, each reflecting its own atmosphere of Hester Scheurwaters inner world, her fears and desires.

    She uses the depiction of women in contemporary society to raise questions about individuality and conformity, being just another female object or very much in control over the male gaze. The different rooms are as a metaphor for the psyche. Each room is a part of the soul with its own dreams and fantasies.

    Loring Knoblauch about the book:

    "While this photobook may be more sexually explicit than some readers will be comfortable with, it’s a natural extension of Kim Kardashian’s Selfish, but seen with the acerbic and questioning eye of an artist. She’s hyperbolized and hypercharged the kind of female objectification and fake identity we have become accustomed to seeing, and yet it somehow passes for almost normal; its satire is so convincing that it persuasively stands in for the real thing, and that dissonance is powerful.

    For those who have been waiting for a photographer to critically engage the wider phenomenon of the selfie, Scheurwater’s bluntly audacious photobook is memorably biting. She’s given us the mannered freedom and sexiness we’re supposed to want (or want to be), incisively exposing the two poles of exhibitionism and voyeurism that now dominate the Facebook-age."

Hester Scheurwater

Born in: 1971

Netherlands

Hester Scheurwater (1971) is a Dutch artist. She graduated from the School of Art of Amsterdam and from the Royal academy of Art in La Hague, she currently practices a rigorous, subversive, reflexive and feminist art. She draws her inspiration from the root of luxury and eroticism to tear and divert it. With her self-portrait covers, she represents the role of the woman as a sexual object. Hester Scheurwater photographs herself infront of a mirror, capturing an external image imbricated of her internal thoughts. "the self-images in a mirror are my way of reacting to the alterated and false media images, which constantly appeal to our imagination, without intending to be taken too seriously", she explains. The artist wants to destroy the "subject-object" relation by bypassing the role of victim. Her photographs are sexually explicit, without lacking delicacy and a touch of lyricism. She deposits a layer of aesthetism, a touch of irony, and a surge of sedition. Her work is explosive but specially disturbing. It evokes the sexualization of society. Her pieces are exhibited in prestigious places, including at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Naarden Festival. The Stedelik Museum Zwolle in the Netherlands put the work of the artist on the spotlight by dedicating a complete exhibition to his work. Hester Scheurwater became famous worldwide for her pornographic self-portraits on Facebook.
