Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s (NL, 1973) surreal, dream-like photographs provide the lasting record of her carefully choreographed, site-specific sculptural interventions and performances in some of the most isolated corners of the earth. Hooft Graafland’s images emphasize the ‘natural strangeness’ of the landscape with uncanny juxtapositions of everyday objects and materials. Local customs and stories are interwoven throughout her work, re-interpreting and re-imagining mythologies related to the landscape.
