Opening reception Thursday, 8 June, 5-8PM
Janet Borden, Inc. is delighted to announce SANDY SKOGLUND: THE OUTTAKES, an exhibition of twelve photographs by Sandy Skoglund. Four small sculptures are also part of the exhibition. This is the gallery’s seventh exhibition with Skoglund.
Sandy Skoglund is a renowned American installation artist and photographer best known for her fantastical and brightly colored tableaux from the 80s, 90s, and early 2000’s. Skoglund composed elaborate sets, creating surrealist scenes, where an accumulation of props, sculptural elements, and models, made fascinating and strange images. A vague sense of nature gone awry pervades the pieces.
The conceptual nature of her work was sometimes forgotten in the sheer technical bravado of the production. For The Outtakes, Skoglund plumbed her archives to pick out alternative images to those used in her tableaux. These works are a fresh view of her magical world before Photoshop.
