Born in Dalfsen, The Netherlands.
Corine Aalvanger studied her BA photography at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, the Netherlands and received her MA in Fine Arts at Master Institute of Visual Cultures AKV St.Joost in the Netherlands.
As a research based artist she uses a variety of media; still and moving images, text and installations. Shaped by her contentious relationship with her own personal history, part of her practice reflects upon the relationship between contemporary issues, such as identity, human behavior, stigmatization, and the way we perceive, usually conditioned to see only one perspective.
Through a participatory and anthropological approach, she investigates whether she can really mean something as an artist, both for the people involved in her project and for her viewer. She also researches forms in which not the image is central, but the way in which the image gives meaning to relevant themes and topics in society.
