Marlous Van Der Sloot 

About

  

Marlous Van der Sloot recently graduated with a bachelor of Design from The Hague Royal Academy of Arts. She was one of the key discoveries of Voies Off 2011.

Her images invite the viewer to enter immaterial worlds of feelings and emotions. They search the human soul as if modern society, with its exacerbated rationalization, had engendered a rupture with the immediacy of the real, disconnected us from our core, and as if it were her role to reconnect us with our lost sense of metaphor and poetry.

Marlous Van der Sloot crafts graceful metaphors, using poetry as a powerful tool to transports us to a universe made of refined images whose ingredients collide to resonate within us as primitive and primal images. Photographing her models in incongruous poses she generates uncanny atmospheres.
