The French artist Noémie Goudal (b. 1984) is known for her photographic works that combine staged elements with natural landscapes. Goudal’s works play tricks on perception, making the viewer doubt their senses. What is real? Where are the boundaries between imagined, natural and human-made?
Erica Nyholm’s photography is about people. She creates her works from memories, experiences and mental images. The stories of the photographs are fictional, but they are based on actual events and moments that have felt meaningful. In Nyholm’s photographs, there is often either a strong sense of intimacy between the characters, or of their loneliness. They make us think about ourselves as human beings. What bonds us together and what separates us?
