Born 1981 in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, Anouk Kruithof is a visual artist, who’s multilayered, interdisciplinary approach encompasses photography, sculpture, installation, artist-books, text, performance, video, animation, websites and interventions in the public domain. Kruithof’s work is an investigation into the online representation of urgent societal themes. Over the past few years she collected circulating images related to issues like privacy, government surveillance, pollution and climate change. Kruithof subjects these to critical scrutiny by extracting existing imagery from the digital sphere, and translating the photo- graphs into her own idiosyncratic three-dimensional visual idiom. Kruithof is interested in how the human psychological condition is shifting in unstable times of systematic control, stress and chaos in the technologically mediated world. She attempts to map states of mind in society, manifesting invisible relationships in physical form and inviting new connections and meanings to arise.
