Wijnanda Deroo invites us within unpopulated interiors, from domestic spaces to public locations such as cafes and hotels. Enhancing the shabby, very Wes Andersonesque aesthetic of the spaces she depicts, the Dutch photographer plays with warm colors, geometric compositions and cinematic lighting to echo the absence of people in a haunting and intimate manner. Since 2004, she has documented the renovation of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, capturing the ephemeral atmospheres conceived by the transformation of the building. Through her eye, the museum’s interiors take on a new narrative made of unusual juxtapositions, medieval sculptures naturally cohabiting with ladders and painting material, empty spaces that resemble abstract installations or the subjects of Rembrandt paintings that seem to question the construction material before them. With her poetic work, Wijnanda Deroo succeeds in making isolation, seductive.
