Exhibition: Cooper & Gorfer My Quiet of Gold

February 25–May 15 2011

HASSELBLAD FOUNDATION The work of Gothenburgbased artist duo Sarah Cooper (USA) and Nina Gorfer (Austria) belongs to a narrative tradition within photography, with roots in 18th and 19th century painting. Their staged photographs hold distinct reference to fables and myths. Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer are choreographers behind their images. Their working process is intuitive and organic. Curiosity attracts them to unknown places where they tactfully and sensitivelly observe the surroundings. Ideas come about and are realized in close collaboration with the people they portray. The exhibition at the Hasselblad Center focuses on the photographs from a journey to Kyrgyzstan, which depict the collective memories and folk tales of a people. The images are processed digitally, forming picturesque collages in which the stories are never linear. Instead they suggest multifaceted and dream like realities.

  1. She is my favorite image. Although I am sorry for the true story that depicts her as the physicians daughter who was kidnapped and carted away and made a pregnant slave of a grizzled man.

    • Oh, I didn’t know… How sad… Actually she looks sad in the photo. Now I understand why.
