2016

Exhibition Description

Astrid Verhoef (The Netherlands) stages scenes that verge on the surreal. Placing individuals and objects where they don’t seem to belong, moving the familiar into an unfamiliar landscape, her photographs seem to recontextualise normality. 

Juxtaposing human and object, Astrid examines identity and emotion in relation to modern society versus natural spaces.

The subject, a city-dweller and office worker (often played by Astrid herself) struggles amongst the elements in a desolate environment, exposing an emotional state of mind in a metaphorical fashion.

Urbanite is a long-term, international project. Searching for a wide range of different landscapes, Astrid Verhoef shot this project in The USA, Peru, Switzerland, France, Austria and The Netherlands.
