Artist Statement:

Kiri Pruntel (1988) is a visual artist currently based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. She’s interested in the way social structures within human behaviour reflect on our society and the world we live in. In her work she explores photography as an investigative method. While utilizing the medium as a performance or intervention, she challenges the realm between reality and fiction. The goal of the work is to narrate the way we perceive ourselves and others.
