Yolenth van den Hoogen is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. She completed her study as a textile designer and worked as a stylist for photography for many magazines, brands and campains, as well as a costume designer for film.
Her fascination for structures and rhythms in patterns she found back in photography of landscapes. She started to work on polaroid to capture the origin of perception and now travels to find parallel worlds: how do we perceive reality and how we try to create order and disorder in an imaginary mindscape.
‘As a child I was sensing, that there had to be a different perspective within the reality we perceive. Something I couldn't put into words. I found out in a later stage of my life that photography and moving images could give me the possibility to capture this. The spaces as we know them, to let them become new spaces, free from the references we learned. An environment in which we are able to walk around, to touch. It is a voyage into the unknown, anything can happen.’
Her works have been selected and exposed in Italy for Analogica 2015.
