Katrin Freisager's Dream StatesErotica // Wednesday, 15 Jan 2014
Katrin Freisager’s most famous works show young women in dream-like states – abstracted and precisely staged in a hotel room, atelier or studio. Her subtle game with costumes and body compositions generate that small frame and mysterious atmosphere that make her work unique. It may seem gaunt, but there’s more to her photographs than just what the eye can see – an entrancing, disrupting uncertainty. In her newer works about landscapes – which were created in her studio – she takes us on a journey between experiencing and remembering, suggestion and after-image. Playing with the ambivalence of fiction and reality, she manages to make her images take us to the future and the past at the same time.
