ANOUK KRUITHOF - ¡AGUAS!

Foam presents the first major solo museum exhibition by Anouk Kruithof (1981, Dordrecht) as part of the exhibition series Next Level.

The work of Kruithof is a refreshingly original contribution to contemporary photography. She approaches the medium from a great variety of angles and mediums, her oeuvre is equally versatile.

Foam commissioned Kruithof to create an entirely new body of work consisting of (photo) sculptures, a video projection and an animation. The works explore the complex relationship of man to nature in a post-internet era. The artist printed online images of environmental disasters on latex and plastic and draped these over sculptures made up of artificial appendages of the human body, such as prostheses and oxygen masks. With her colorful and apocalyptic installation, Kruithof wittily queries how a disastrous reality is aestheticized and shared unthinkingly on the internet.

The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 16 November in the presence of the artist.
