“Sometimes I just get an idea, and if I think it’s really good then I have to make it happen, whatever it takes.”
- Scarlet Hooft Graafland

Scarlett Hooft Graafland is a sculptor and photographer. Her first ever large solo retrospective, held in Huis Marseille, presents her photographs of majestic landscapes – in China, on the salt flats of Bolivia, the Arctic plains of northern Canada, and the lava fields of Iceland. Her compositions make subtle use of ‘soft’ materials like balls, balloons, fluids and pigments, as well as the participation of the local people and, on occasion, animals. Her props are short-lived and do not disturb the landscape in any way; they are almost insignificant when compared to the overwhelming spaces of the landscapes in which she works. But the perspective that Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s imagination brings to bear on these vast spaces brings images to life which are as playful as they are succinct.
