Anouk Kruithof

Biography

°1981 Dordrecht, the Netherlands

Anouk Kruithof is a visual artist. Her multilayered, transdisciplinary approach encompasses photography,sculpture,installation, artist-books, text, performance, video, animation, websites and (social) interventions in the public domain. Kruithof’s work explores a ‘contemporary schizophrenia’ which can be seen as an indelible mental disease of contemporary life. By continually navigating between the digital and physical experiential sphere, Kruithof investigates a collective state of mind that is not solely grounded in the material world, but more and more often in the relentless flow of images in an amorphous digital world.

Her work has been exhibited internationally at institutions such as: Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City, VOO?UIT, Ghent Belgium, TATE London, MBAL Switzerland; The Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen China
