  • Sandy Skoglund (born September 11, 1946) is an American photographer and installation artist.Skoglund creates surrealist images by building elaborate sets or tableaux, furnishing them with carefully selected colored furniture and other objects, a process of which takes her months to complete. Finally, she photographs the set, complete with actors. The works are characterized by an overwhelming amount of one object and either bright, contrasting colors or a monochromatic color scheme.Skoglund studied both art history and studio art at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, graduating in 1968. In 1967, she studied art history at the Sorbonne and École du Louvre in Paris, France. After graduating from Smith College, she went to graduate school at the University of Iowa in 1969, where she studied filmmaking, multimedia art, and printmaking. In 1971, she earned her Master of Arts and in 1972 a Master of Fine Arts in painting.In 1972, Skoglund began working as a conceptual artist in New York. She became interested in teaching herself photography to document her artistic endeavors, experimenting with themes of repetition. In 1978, she had produced a series of repetitious food item still life images.One of her most-known works, entitled Radioactive Cats, features green-painted clay cats running amok in a gray kitchen. An older man sits in a chair with his back facing the camera while his elderly wife looks into a refrigerator that is the same color as the walls. Another image, Fox Games has a similar feel to Radioactive Cats and is also widely recognized. A third and final oft-recognized piece by her features numerous fish hovering above people in bed late at night and is called Revenge of the Goldfish. The piece was used as cover art for the Inspiral Carpets album of the same name.Skoglund was an art professor at the University of Hartford between 1973 and 1976. She is currently teaching photography and art installation/multimedia at Rutgers University in New Jersey.Skoglund has recently completed a series titled "True Fiction Two". This recent project is similar to the "True Fiction" series that she began in 1986. This series was not completed due to the discontinuation of materials that Skoglund was using. Kodak canceled the production of the dye that Skoglund was using for her prints. Each image in "True Fiction Two" has been meticulously crafted to assimilate the visual and photographic possibilities now available in digital processes.Her works are held in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Dayton Art Institute.
  • Sandy Skoglund (* 11. September 1946) ist eine US-amerikanische Fotografin und Installationskünstlerin.Sandy Skoglund studierte Kunstgeschichte und Bildende Kunst am Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, welches sie nach einem Auslandsjahr an der Sorbonne und der École du Louvre, Paris, 1968 abschloss. Danach ging sie an die University of Iowa, wo sie Filmproduktion, Multimedia-Kunst und Druckgrafik studierte. Im Jahr 1971 erwarb sie ihren Master of Arts und 1972 einen Master of Fine Arts in Malerei.Nach ihrem Studium ging Sandy Skoglund als Konzeptkünstlerin nach New York. Sie begann zu fotografieren, um ihre künstlerischen Fortschritte zu dokumentieren und weil sie sich für die repetitiven Möglichkeiten dieses Mediums interessierte. 1978 machte sie eine Reihe von sich wiederholender Stilleben.Sandy Skoglund wurde für ihre surrealen Szenen, ihren Trompe-l’œil-Effekt und die sehr aufwendig erschaffenen Setbauten bekannt. Das Einrichten und die farbliche Abstimmung der Möbel und anderer Objekte kann dabei mehrere Wochen in Anspruch nehmen, bis schließlich das komplette Szenario mit Akteuren fotografisch aufgenommen werden kann. Hervorstechendstes Merkmal für die Arbeiten von Sandy Skoglund sind dabei der überwältigende Detailreichtum und die Verwendung von sehr kontrastreichen oder monochromen Farbschemata.Eines ihrer bekanntesten Fotografien ist, neben „Revenge of the Goldfish“, „Radioactive Cats“. Es zeigt über 20 grün bemalte Katzen aus Ton, die einer grau gehaltenen Küche sitzen. Ein älterer Mann sitzt auf einem Stuhl mit dem Rücken zur Kamera, während seine Frau in den Kühlschrank blickt. Zwischen 1973 und 1976 war Skoglund Professorien an der University of Hartford. Derzeit ist sie Dozentin für Fotografie, Kunst-Installationen und Multimedia an der Rutgers University in New Jersey. Ihre Arbeiten sind in zahlreichen Sammlungen einschließlich des Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago sowie im San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, vertreten.

  • Sandy Skoglund (Quincy, 11 settembre 1946) è un'artista, fotografa e installation artist statunitense, vive e lavora a New York.Skoglund ha studiato arte (scultura, fotografia, cinema) all'Università dell'Iowa e storia dell'arte alla Sorbona.Il suo primo lavoro noto è Radioactive Cats del 1980, una monocroma stanza grigia abitata da due anziani personaggi immobili e da una grande quantità di gatti verdi. Da allora Skoglund realizza installazioni ambientali utilizzando oggetti quotidiani, piccole sculture e materiali da lei disegnati e fabbricati. Crea dimensioni surreali ed ossessive in cui dominano colori uniformi e irreali che poi fotografa, rendendole ancora più agghiaccianti attraverso l'appiattimento dei rapporti luce/ombra in sede di ripresa e lo sfruttamento dei colori vivi delle grandi cibachrome su alluminio. Produce circa un'immagine all'anno curandone ogni minimo dettaglio. Ogni installazione viene costruita con tecniche diverse ed è dotata di significato autonomo, indipendente dalla realizzazione fotografica finale, la quale tuttavia risulta essere unico oggetto espositivo in virtù delle comuni nozioni circa la fotografia come medium riproduttivo, a rappresentare l'artificiosità del mondo contemporaneo.
