Cindy Sherman: Untitled Horrors

Untitled Horrors

Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo
Photos, self-portraits

The main exhibition at Astrup Fearnley Museet at the moment is Untitled Horrors by photographer Cindy Sherman. These are manipulated photos, which is her speciality. This is a collection of her darker works. Some horrors are obvious, some less visible, but it is all based on the human she dresses up like and photographs. Some photos are simply too repulsive for my taste, while others rather contain a beautiful sense of melancholia. Some personas are so convincing I need to remind myself they are all self-portraits.
