Lisanne Hoogerwerf (1987)

Lives and works in The Hague, The Netherlands

She graduated in 2011 from the Fine Art department of the Royal Academy of Art. Shortly after she finished a bachelor in film and Literature at the University of Leiden. She started her career by creating art installations in which she combined different media such as painting and performance. At the side on she worked as a freelance photographer, art critic and filmmaker. During her career she gained more interest in photography and combined her skills as an artist and painter with lens-based practices. Nowadays she stages her imagination and the world around her by creating small-scale sets.

Hoogerwerfs artworks depict places that you can’t find in ordinary reality, but that are made with real materials like pieces of wood, sand, glue, and painted canvas. She creates her art as a way to visualize inner and outer human landscapes. Her studio floor functions as a stage upon which she builds, captures, and deconstructs her landscapes. With her scenes, she sometimes refers to global developments, like the pandemic, the climate crisis and environmental issues. The scenes are emptied of the hustle and bustle of everyday life: no traffic or crowded cityscapes to be seen. Contrasting characteristics and elements can be linked to her work, like: utopian/dystopian, playfulness/seriousness, society/nature, beauty/drabness.
