Klaske Oenema is a visual artist and writer. With image, language ánd music, she makes poetic performances and video works in which the voice plays an important role. Central in her work is the question how we give meaning to things, and how meaning is lost. By showing this process in an open, inquisitive manner, she invites the viewer to become aware of their own process of creating meaning.

Her work has been shown on various stages and venues, a.o. Lowlands, De Appel, Centraal Museum Utrecht and art festival Watou. Literary magazines  De Gids and Papieren Helden have published stories.
