Sofie Winther Foged has created an installation containing four human dolls in 1:1 scale. The models are her stepsister Oline (20 years), her little sister Liva (9 years) and her friend Rune (20 years). In her work; Sofie likes to get as close to reality as she possibly can – as an example the clothes the dolls are dressed in, are clothes taken from the models’ own wardrobes. This increases the feeling of authenticity and creates an almost hyperreal expression in her work.
The material is very simple (vita wrap, tape, paper) but the output is nearly
more realistic than the real world. Amazing – and very scary. See it; and
