Anouk Kruithof

Artist lecture Thursday, February 06, 2014 7PM
Timken Lecture Hall, California College of the Arts, San Francisco

Dutch artist Anouk Kruithof considers photography a starting point for her interdisciplinary and often conceptual art practice. Interviews, temporary site-specific installations and performative interactions with unknown people and places form the basis of her photographs. These photographs appear in a variety of contexts including minimal installations and tactile artist-books.

She has published seven artist books including Becoming Blue (2009), Happy Birthday to You (2011), A Head With Wings (2011) and, most recently, Pixel Stress (2013). In 2011, she won the Grand Prix Jury as well as the School of Visual Arts’ Photo Global Prize at Festival International de Mode et de Photographie à Hyères, France. In 2012, she received an Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography.

Her work has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Rotterdam, Shanghai, Sydney and Vienna. Kruithof will be included in an upcoming two-person exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (March 14 through June 8) addressing contemporary approaches to street photography

The work of Awoiska van der Molen (b. 1972, Netherlands) develops from a desire to comprehend the core of the isolated world she photographs. In order to achieve the sense of solitude necessary to gain access to the stoic nature of the landscape, she spends long periods of time isolated in the natural environment. She takes time to experience the landscape and penetrates deep into the essence of the remote, hushed world created in her photographs. She immerses herself in the landscape, moves slowly, returns repeatedly and by doing so makes these unknown places her own. This gradual and solitary working process continues into the darkroom where her pictures are printed by hand—an intimate process—further imparting a unique stillness that emanates from her work.
