The spirit of Hans Bellmer lives in the twenty first century in Kooiker’s monograph "sunday." These limpid outdoor photographs capture a naked fat woman wearing high heels, her white body so bleached that her genitalia are invisible, rendering her doll-like.
She poses, faceless, in positions that are sometimes sexual, sometimes motionless and morbid. Around her is a back garden, with a homemade dais for her to pose on, and views of dark trees and bushes with blood-red leaves.
Kooiker uses his contemporary technique to create an oblique, threatening, somehow vintage atmosphere.
This is a special edition of 25 for Motto. It's numbered and signed and comes with an A4 color print.
sunday. is also available as a book (not signed or numbered) printed in an edition of 1000.
