+ About the work
In Eva Stenram’s work, bodies are often fragmented and fuse with their surroundings, camouflaging or becoming a part of an interior or landscape. In Home Town the body of a nude model has been partially covered by a new textile pattern constructed from the photographed fabric that the woman’s body rests upon. Home Town is part of a series of works, collectively titled Offcut, that extract details from found vintage erotic photographs and renders them in a new, often material form.
+ About the artist
Eva Stenram (Stockholm/Berlin) frequently works with vintage erotica. She buys negatives, slides and men’s magazines from the post-war era; this collection has become both a source of inspiration and her raw working material. The photographs are sometimes scanned, sometimes rephotographed, and subsequently changed through digital, analogue or physical manipulation. Her work is ultimately about being a viewer, a consumer of images. Stenram’s work has been exhibited worldwide, recent important exhibitions include Bodyfiction, the leading exhibition of the European Month of Photography programme, A Handful of Dust curated by David Campany, and Home Sweet Home at the 2019 Rencontres d’Arles. She has been selected as one of the 100 Heroines of contemporary global photography by the Royal Photographic Society.
