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
