Puck Verkade's work reconsiders the archetypes and narratives that shape human experience and social structures.

Delivered with humour and a distinct taste for the absurd, her videos and drawings tell stories from alternative perspectives, making space for the unheard and under-represented.

Puck Verkade’s practice centers around moving image. Shifting between the different visual modes of stop motion animation, green screen and direct to camera performance, her fast paced montages have the sensation of a moving collage; a dense juxtaposition of layered images and sounds in a cartoon reality. Since 2019 Verkade develops the characters for het video's in series of watercolours, which she also explores in large wall drawings.

For Liste Showtime we present you recent watercolours that Verkade made in relation to her new video ‘Cursed’, in which the role of the protagonist is performed by "our inner devil".

‘Cursed’ will be launched on 17 September during Kunsttage Basel as the first iteration of the Explorers Film Club, which is curated by Benedikt Wyss & Samuel Leuenberger - in cooperation with Atelier Mondial, Club Elysia, Kunsthaus Baselland, and Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK.
