'Inner space/Outer space', an installation comprising a film screen featuring the same woman on either side. She is reading in Plato's dialogues on love, The Symposium, the passage in which Aristophanes our eternal search for our other half explains. 
The artist evokes the suggestion that you could get to know her better. But an encounter fails to occur. Karhof: 'This work revolves around the desire to truly know the other and impossibility of this'. The film 'Inner space/Outer space' was granted the BNG Workspace Project Award, a yearly project price of ZAAL5 (Filmhuis Den Haag) to explore the nature of film. According to the jury, Yasmijn Karhof has captured the spirit of the times with her film: ‘She is able, in a conceptual and poetic manner, to translate the desire for peace and contemplation in a hectic urban environment into a seemingly simple image. The interactive element entices the viewer to move closer to the work, and at the same time emphasises the illusion that is film'.

The jury of Workspace12 were Maurice Bogaert (winner Workspace 11), Mariette Dölle (head of program of Tent. Rotterdam) Remco Vlaanderen (senior editor Submarine Channel) and Anna Abrahams (filmmaker and working at Eye Film Institute Netherlands).
