Stockholm 19 October 2013 – 19 January 2014
Since the 1980s Sherman’s works have been crucial to our perception of how identity is constructed, and of the mythogenic power of pictures. The exhibition highlights the frightening and fascinating dark streak that imbues Sherman’s entire oeuvre. Characters on the verge of derailing, creatures distancing themselves from humanity, moving towards the mythological, bestial or machinelike. In the galleries we encounter many of her works in completely new ways; a visual cacophony that generates other images and sequences, installed in close collaboration with the artist.
Cindy Sherman – Untitled Horrors is curated by Daniel Birnhaum, Lena Essling, Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hanne Beate Ueland. The exhibition is organised by the Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in collaboration withKunsthaus Zürich.
