Het werk van Rita Hoofwijk begint in bestaande, waarneembare omgevingen. Ze creëert situaties die, in alle eenvoud, vragen om een heroverweging van datgene wat we als onveranderlijk ervaren. In wisselende samenwerkingen verkent ze de mogelijkheden van de (tussen)ruimtes die haar praktijk definiëren.
Dramaturge Hannah Loewenthal schreef in juni 2018 over Rita: "Today Rita is making an enquiry, not only into what fascinates her but why something rather than another thing might fascinate her, or why one place over another place might fascinate her. In this why, there is the possibility to know more about how she would like to share this with others and to recognize the conditions of the in-between spaces which define her practice. She deconstructs and redefines what we might call ‘common’ by bringing people into a state of wondering and into the (specific) place where she would like to be with them. This wondering together is an act of defiance against what we define as concrete and how we might shape the in-between through this common fascination."
