The video installation Bait draws parallels between environmental and sexual violence, exploring matters of consent, complicity and the ethics of care. Verkade takes cues from a wide range of speculative theories that consider water as the pivotal element for the origins of agency and resistance. She uses humour and absurdity to draw the viewer into a vortex of multiple considerations and cross references between fiction and fact, by mixing past, present and future perspectives.
