''“All human life on the planet is born of woman. The one unifying, incontrovertible experience shared by all women and men is that months-long period we spent unfolding inside a woman’s body. Because young humans remain dependent upon nurture for a much longer period than other mammals, and because of the division of labor long established in human groups, where women not only bear and suckle but are assigned almost total responsibility for children, most of us first know both love and disappointment, power and tenderness, in the person of a woman.”
― Adrienne Rich, Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution''
De Roover's early work focuses on the meaning of identities and the performative aspect of its creation. In previous projects she has researched grass roots politics and the relation between presidential campaigning and Greek Theatre ([[You can’t spell America w/o me, 2013]]), how identities exist on the internet in relation tot pop culture ([[The Selfie Song, 2013]]), Mormon Lifestyle and musical ([[A Mitt Summer Night’s Dream, 2014]]) and the cult of health ([[Is bio the new avant garde, 2015]]) and religion ([[Cosmic Latte, 2016]]). In her latest work she is dealing with questions regarding the nuclear family, feminism/motherhood and ethics of reproduction.
