Terra Cognita

Agnes Thor

Untitled (2010)

In her work Agnes Thor creates worlds that fall into the twilight zone between reality and fiction. This is because she photographs both actual, and small, staged events. Her Nathalie: Southwood Sequence is a portrait of a utopia, as described in Celtic myths. Aurora Borealis is inspired by Norse myths, and takes place in a world where trees, stones or mist can suddenly be transformed into mythic beings. UNTITLED presents a selection from these series, which are indirect portraits of Thor herself.
