Scarlett Hooft Graafland

The United Kingdom, London Flowers Gallery

Documenting her own bizarre interventions in harsh landscapes, Scarlett Hooft Graafland (b. 1973, the Netherlands) uses a combination of photography, performance, and site-specific sculpture to create images that are surreal and fantastical. Hooft Graafland journeys deep into remote, difficult terrains—Bolivian salt flats, the Arctic, or rural China—which she uses as stark and striking backdrops to playful juxtapositions and installations often inspired by the local population and mythology.
