THE DAILY EXHAUSTION is a small newspaper, which contains 23 self-portraits of an obsessed workaholic artist, who has reached the sweaty emotional state of exhaustion. When you browse through the publication, you will pass a gradual colour spectrum, which Kruithof considers the stratification of human energy. THE DAILY EXHAUSTION confirmed quite aware that a photo or a photo series is invented as a conscious construction, but simultaneously withdraws that statement into question, because the pictures are credible and honest. This causes confusion and raises the question of what THE DAILY EXHAUSTION actually is? In her current and future exhibitions Anouk Kruithof displays THE DAILY EXHAUSTION newspapers either as a large pile, from which visitors can take a copy for free or as a large wall installation made out of the original pages of the newspaper.
