We are thrilled to announce Clare Strand as one of the guest artists of the PSF2016 group exhibition!
Clare Strand (1973) works with photography. She describes her working method as being like ‘rolling in the fresh-cut grass and seeing what you pick up on your jumper.’ Strand’s constantly evolving practice brings together intensive research, deadpan humour and insights into popular culture, shifting from the mysterious and the absurd to understanding public obsessions, often via trickery and manipulation. Recent exhibited work includes machines to encourage entropy, web programs, looped films and intricate photographic constructions focusing on subverting, reimagining and manipulating photography’s functional and utilitarian origins.
