Through 83 photographs, many of which are published here for the first time, "The Artificial Mirror" traces the surprising and original evolution of Sandy Skoglunds career, from her very first and experimental snaps to her latest photographs, which are now a distinctive feature of her artistic production. Sandy Skoglund is one of the most important representatives of stage photography. She creates surreal images by arranging complex sets and tableaux which she fills with colourful objects and furniture, carefully selected over months. Her works are often characterized by a high number of multiples of the same object. This book gathers for the first time a unique selection of innovative and controvert works by this American artist, who has radically changed the definition of real.
