'Be Like Water' brings together for the first time a large selection of artworks made by artist Anouk Kruithof over twenty years (2002–23). Exploring and re-imaging photography and sculpture, Kruithof has placed the interaction, collaboration and relationship between people and their (natural and/or technological) surroundings at the core of her practice to create liberating and disturbing artworks.
This book is a retro-perspective; by combining and mixing works in an anti-chronological and anti-thematic way, in which we closely collaborated to develop a newly evolved narrative that interweaves complexity and multiplicity with fun and play, and at the same time leaves room for a critical reinterpretation.
