Visual artist Yasmijn Karhof has particularly expressed herself through the medium of film over the last few years. She is concerned with the perception of reality, especially with regards to the notion of how the imagination is able to play and colour perception. Karhof's films have a sensitive, melancholic feel to them: they seem everyday, yet a surreal and alienating atmosphere gradually emerges.

For KadS, Karhof is presenting 'Inner space/Outer space', an installation comprising a film screen featuring the same woman on either side. 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 Award. 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'.

Yasmijn Karhof  [Edam, 1974] studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, The Cooper Union School of Art in New York and the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. She works with photography, film, performance and installations in a variety of combinations. Karhof has exhibited at the Centraal Museum, Utrecht,  Museum De Paviljoens, Almere, Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch, Youkobo Art Space in Tokyo and the Living Art Museum in Reykjavik.
