Katrín Elvarsdóttir's Equivocal

I found Icelandic photographer Katrín Elvarsdóttir's work today via Humble Arts Foundation's latest Group Show exhibition. Her wonderfully ominous series Equivocal reads as fragmented stills from a dream sequence. In the statement, Elvarsdóttir affirms:

"We are inside looking out. We are outside looking in. A woman in a red coat, a mobile home after midnight, yellow curtains – these are all clues in a fragmented narrative that raises questions rather than provides answers. In the photography series “Equivocal” we witness enigmatic events that we inadvertently have taken part in. Like uninvited guests in a scenario that refuses to reveal whether it is fact or fiction. The fragments combine in multiple ways and force upon us incomplete story lines of an ambiguous nature. Whether we like it or not."
