Marlous Van der Sloot

Le Corps Vecu

In modern society we often want to forget that “the physical” is also a source of information. Because of rationalization, we turned away from our primoridial world, convinced that our senses do not learn us anything valuable. Only the objective is worth to hold on to. But we cannot ignore our body and look at it as a “lifeless bag of cells”. We don’t just have a body, we ARE a body. Forgetting this gives us a feeling of a ”sleeping arm”. In this condition your limb is biologically still yours, but you do not experience it as yours. It seems like the arm of a stranger… Le Corps Vécu is a body of works, focusing on restoring physicality to our overly rational minds, bringing us back in touch with our body and the sensual world around us.

Marlous van der Sloot (1986, The Netherlands) graduated in 2011 from the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands, where her work developed towards the perception of senses. Her work has been shown at various international festivals, galleries and events including: Galerie Voies Off (France), PHotoEspaña (Spain), Singapore International Photography Festival. Currently she lives and works in the Netherlands and is represented by Voies off Galerie in Arles, France.
