About Marlous Van Der Sloot

Marlous van der Sloot (1986) graduated in 2011 from the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands, where her work developed towards the perception of senses.

In the modern society we often want to forget that 'the physical' is also a source of information. Because of rationalisation, we turned away from our 'ordinary' world, convinced that our senses do not learn us anything valuable. But we cannot ignore our body and look at it as a 'lifeless bag of cells'. We don't just have a body, we are a body. Forgetting this gives us the same feeling as a sleeping arm. In this condition your limb is biological still yours, but you do not experience it as yours. It seems the arm of a stranger...

The alienation of our body is the theme of my work. My aim is to create images which raise physical awareness.

Her work has been shown at various international festivals, galleries and events including: Galerie Voies Off (FR), PHotoEspana (ES), Journées photographiques de Biel/Bienne (CH), Singapore International Photography Festival (SG), Fotofestival Naarden (NL) and Slideluck Potshow Amsterdam (NL). Besides she works in commission for clients as Nederlands Dans Theater, Korzo Theater and Me Studio.
