closed Sandy Skoglund. Visioni Ibride

The show

On Thursday 24 January in the spaces of CAMERA – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia in Turin, the opening to the public will take place of the major exhibition Sandy Skoglund. Visioni Ibride: the first retrospective show by the US artist Sandy Skoglund (1946).

The exhibition brings together works ranging from her debut projects in the early 1970s right up to the still unpublished Winter, which the artist has been working on for more than ten years. It will be this image – accompanied by a number of sculptures created for the installation from which the photograph was taken – that will serve as the fulcrum of the display: a spectacular world premiere, once again confirming the uniqueness of her research and her language, developed at the height of the conceptual climate only to evolve through an imagery suspended between dreams and reality, one of an extraordinary evocative power. 

The exhibition thus allows us to follow this path through more than hundred works, almost all large format images. Ranging from the earliest photographic series in the mid ’70s, which already feature the characteristic themes of the domestic setting and its transformation into a place of apparitions between the comical and the unsettling, right up to the great compositions of the early 1980s, which were to lead the artist to international fame. In particular, we recall the visionary Radioactive Cats (1980) and her Revenge of the Goldfish (1981), which became outright icons of the period, surreal and estranging reappraisals of family settings with unlikely colours, invaded by green cats and flying fish.
