Krista van der Wilk Video artist - The Hague, The Netherlands
Krista van der Wilk is a Dutch visual artist working with projection, video installation, film and experimental photography.
After graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld academy in Amsterdam, she took a deep dive in a career as a Visual Jockey at live events. These visual pieces had a high level of playfulness, but always had to co-exist in a live-event with many other elements.
At some point this world became too restricted and the need to make work that would be an experience on its own grew bigger.
She is now working from a fantastic studio in The Hague (NL) within a environment where experimentation is a big part of daily life.
Natural movements and elements form the starting point of all the work. Collecting data and imagery from sunlight, shadow, rain, wind, sea, sand, trees, leaves etc.
After this is taken straight out of nature, the data is digitally transformed into fictional atmospheric experiences.
By combining realistic and digitally manipulated elements, the work plays with the visual expectations and is stretching these as far as possible.
The work can be experienced as slow paced moving paintings, verging on the abstract. But because there is always a presence of nonfiction, it intertwines with the reality. Making its way in your current surrounding or mindset.
