Beyond the Body by Imme van der Haak

My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities. In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life. Beyond the body brings into being an ambiguous image that intrigues, astonishes or sometimes even disturbs. 

Imme van der Haak is born in Arnhem, the Netherlands. She graduated in 2010 from Artez, the academy of arts.  (check Artez 2010 graduation report). Following this, she moved to London for a master in Product Design at London’s Royal College of Art where she graduated in 2012.
