Krista van der Wilk Video artist - The Hague, The Netherlands
Raised in a environment where there was always a presence of facts and fiction. Telling stories versus science. This made me skeptical about the reality of others. This resulted in always looking for multiple sides of experiences. But also questioning my own experience of reality.
Working with data straight out of nature, and transform this in a fictional experience. Highlighting the realization there is more outside of our own mind and forced upon structures, even when sticking to facts. By combining realistic and manipulated elements, the works play with the visual expectations and is stretching it as far as possible.
After graduating from art academy, I worked as a Visual Jockey at live events. Reacting on the moment, making adjustments in video that adds a layer to the live-experience. At some point this world became too restricted and the need to make video's that could stand on their own grew bigger. Telling a story, making an experience.
I am working from a fantastic studio in The Hague, within an environment where experiment is a big part of daily life.
