People who have saved this event:


Niemi uses two seemingly opposite aesthetic strategies - beauty and unheimlich, or the creepy - and places Hitchcock blondes in landscapes that resemble David Lynch's films.


Anja Niemi (born 1976 in Oslo, Norway) creates carefully prepared fictions. She herself is both an artist and a motif when she repairs the self-portrait genre through photographic "tableaux-vivants", staged images. Niemi leans towards a rich tradition in photography of building worlds where fantasies can be lived out, and exercising strict control over their characters and places. Such precision and attention to detail provides a space for freedom that she uses to ask challenging questions about the nature of the self, about wanting to be someone else and about adaptation.
