Puck Verkade’s (1987) artistic practice is marked by the exploration of how human beings give meaning to life. Using an investigative documentary method, she questions matters of purpose and their ambiguous nature. She is drawn to subjects that expose the human psychological condition, the way we construct our identity through belief systems, and the individual’s position within society. After receiving her BFA from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Verkade’s work has been shown at various institutions, such as the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and Showroom MAMA, Rotterdam. She recently completed residencies in Thailand and Iceland and is currently studying for her MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, London.
In 2017 Puck Verkade will have a solo exhibition at Dürst Britt & Mayhew.
