Noa Verhofstad

amsterdam, london

In a time in which anything is possible in the field of digital image manipulation, Noa Verhofstad places the focus on craftsmanship and handwork. Virtually every essential element, whether it is a photo, a film, a decor or an installation, is created and constructed by hand. The work of Noa Verhofstad always exudes a sense of nostalgia and wonder. All installations are composed with the utmost care and attention to detail, a process in which the choice of materials always plays a very decisive role. Paper, cardboard, wool, glass or wood, they all contribute to the telling of this one story.Verhofstad graduated in 2007 from the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, with a degree in Theatre. After briefly working as a director and curator, she has turned her focus entirely on the development of images and concepts through Studio Noa Verhofstad, which she has owned since 2011.
