Skoglund Sandy

SANDY SKOGLUND

Osservando le immagini che l’artista americana Sandy Skoglund, indiscussa pioniera della Staged Photography, ha realizzato dalla fine degli anni Settanta a oggi, si entra in un mondo meraviglioso e perturbante, in cui incantamento ed inquietudine, quotidianità e aspetti fiabeschi convivono armoniosamente.

Definire le sue opere è un problema non da poco: sono sculture, oppure installazioni, o fotografie di installazioni e sculture? Nulla di ciò che appare al loro interno viene infatti manipolato tramite photoshop: al contrario, tutto si mostra per ciò che realmente è. E’ proprio l’artista in persona a creare, dettaglio dopo dettaglio, le sue scenografie, facendo sì che ogni elemento dell’ambientazione generale sia un’opera d’arte a sé stante: infatti, dopo aver predisposto il set, inserisce le varie sculture realizzate a mano in terracotta e resina dipinta e, infine, le comparse umane, traducendo così concretamente l’idea di un’opera d’arte totale.

Spesso mi chiedono perché non realizzi le mie immagini al computer: ne cambierebbe il significato. Sapere che ciò che guardiamo è esistito davvero, modifica la nostra percezione dell’immagine“, ha dichiarato infatti l’artista parlando del proprio lavoro.

Sia le sue fotografie sia le sue installazioni sono parte delle collezioni dei più importanti musei e istituzioni del mondo: Centre Pompidou, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Denver Museum, Getty Museum, Maison Européenne de la Photographie…

Inoltre è ora in lavorazione il grande volume antologico curato dal Prof. Germano Celant e dedicato alla figura di Sandy Skoglund, la cui pubblicazione avverrà in concomitanza con l’inaugurazione di tre grandi mostre, una italiana, una europea ed una mondiale, incentrate su “Winter”, il nuovo atteso lavoro di Sandy Skoglund.
