The publication provides an overview of the fascinating work of the contemporary Dutch artist Juul Kraijer. Her monumental drawings, photographs, sculptures and video works sound out and dissolve the boundaries of the human body and show hybrid creatures between animal and human.
In her works Juul Kraijer examines human nature. For her, the body becomes synonymous with humanity. She primarily portrays female figures whose bodies have mostly undergone a metamorphosis: bodies dissolve into swarms of fish, fuse with gnarled branches or become transformed into animals. The boundaries of bodies are constantly sounded out and crossed. The book shows in large format a selection of Kraijer’s works, offers an overview of the artist’s oeuvre and gives her an opportunity to speak personally in an interview.
