Statement

In the work of Dutch artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland you find a combination of straight photographic practice with performance and sculpture in which she constantly refers to a more profound cultural discourse of her surroundings. She made extensive travels to various parts of the world to work on projects, such as in the highlands of Bolivia, the south of China, the arctic Canada and the Palestinian Westbank. In these site-specific installations and photo set-ups she would make use of local materials, traditions or techniques. Most recently she is having a soloshow at Michael Hoppen Contemporary gallery in London and a duo show with Jan Bünnig at Autocenter, Berlin and she will participate in the exhibition ‘Slow Art’ at Nuke Gallery in Paris, opening the 20st of February.

Hooft Graafland graduated from the Royal Academy in The Hague, The Netherlands, studied for one year at the post-graduate program at Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem and graduated in 2002 from a MFA in sculpture at Parsons School of Design, New York.
