“INTERRUPTIONS”, “THE WEATHER DIARIES”. Photo Collages. Sarah COOPER, Nina GORFER (“COOPER & GORFER” Groupe)

Based in Gothenburg (Sweden) and Berlin (Germany), artists Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer have worked together since 2006. The main focus of their work is the role of women in isolated societies of indigenous people of northern Europe. The artists travel across remote and hardly accessible places to study the culture and everyday life of the inhabitants thereof, gathering stories and creating original photographic portraits in a complicated photo collage technique. The project Interruptions is based on interviews with the indigenous female inhabitants of the northernmost region of Sweden — Sámi women of varied ages, who have agreed to pose for photographs staging and visualising their stories and circumstances. The project The Weather Diaries is an artistic research of the traditional women’s costume in Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland. The resulting body of work highlights the innate connections between fashion, culture, and nature.
