While in the Netherlands she worked as Research Assistant and Project Facilitator for Droog founder Gijs Bakker, and Chi ha paura…? Foundation’s project Global Identity.
Kerianne has successfully worked as an integral part of curatorial teams to produce major exhibitions at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, and the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.

Her work is included in major collections such as the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
Kerianne mixes traditional and digitally driven making with ethnographic and sociological research to consider source, geography and material specificity. She is interested in craft and materiality as cultural phenomenon.
