After working in her own studio for 15 years, Hester Scheurwater makes a fieldtrip to work at a different location. In the Work In Progress Scheurwater presents a visual report in the form of a photo-diary in which she puts herself and others in the centre of attention. She’ll experiment with photographing ‘models’, that she finds amongst students and by putting open calls on Facebook. Newly made work will be shown on big prints and projections on the walls and windows.
Scheurwater presents her work on four Thursday evenings. People important to Scheurwater are invited to talk about her and her work as well. The evenings take place on:

Hester Scheurwater (1971) studied monumental art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague. Under the guise of self-portraits, she investigates and critiques the role of woman as a sex object. Photographs of herself posing before a mirror reflects both Scheurwater’s inner thoughts and outward appearance. “The mirrored self-images are my way of reacting on the imitated and fake media images, which are constantly calling upon our imagination, without intending to be taken too seriously, ” she explains. ” I try to deconstruct this call’s effect with my reactions by switching the ‘subject-object’ relationship, without being victimised by it.” Scheurwater’s work is sexually explicit, and therefore well known. Scheurwater also teaches video art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague.
