Gone Astray
Clare Strand at the Folkwang Museum in Essen



Mysterious scenarios that resemble crime scenes-Clare Strand's photo works reflect her fascination for crime and horror stories. Now, the Folkwang Museum in Essen presents the first one-person exhibition of the young British artist, who won the Deutsche Bank Pyramid Award for art in 1998. Deutsche Bank London has been awarding the prize since 1993 to support young artists after graduation.

Clare Strand works primarily in series, for instance Gone Astray (Portraits and Details). She portrays people from today in front of a painted backdrop reminiscent of 19th-century photography. Portraits are combined with mysterious night views, works that also offer evidence of the artist's preference for the uncertain and the ambiguity of photographic images. Each work evokes a different set of associations that spark a variety of different stories in the imagination.
